Teachers Health members in the Illawarra are now benefitting from state-of-the-art eyecare and dental services on their doorstep, following the opening of Teachers Health Centre in Wollongong. The centre joins five other locations across NSW, Victoria and South Australia.
New Wollongong Teachers Health service
Brad Joyce, CEO of Teachers Health, said, “We’ve invested in Wollongong because it’s home to one of our largest membership bases in the state. It’s our way of giving back to our loyal members in the region, providing extra value for their membership with us.”
Representing the IEU at the opening were IEU Secretary Mark Northam, Teachers Exchange Coordinator and Executive Assistant Helen Gregory, IEU South Coast Branch President Glen Lowe, IEU Organiser Valerie Jones and IEU President Chris Wilkinson and Tina Smith IEU Organiser and President South Coast Labour Council.
“The new centre has been an asset to teachers and support staff in the Illawarra. We no longer need to travel to Sydney for consultations and it provides excellent services for all members,” Lowe said.
