Ask the doctors: Health Q&A Live

The Latte Lounge hosted a special live 'Health Q&A' with a team of doctors from The Wellington Hospital Elstree Waterfront Outpatient Centre. 

We put your health questions to the doctors in a Facebook Live in The Latte Lounge Facebook Group

About this event

We all know that it’s been a lot harder than usual this year to access our normal GP and health services. Many of us have tried to avoid hospitals and GP waiting rooms and as a result those non-urgent little ‘niggles’ have been put to one side.

That’s why I invited four top doctors from The Wellington Hospital Elstree Waterfront Outpatient Centre to join me for a Facebook Live to answer all of your health questions.
