The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation is committed to helping the hospital provide innovative patient care which doesn’t end when you leave the door, raising the funds needed so that women receive the best possible care when visiting the Hospital.  With a passionate team and a Board that includes our very own Associate Professor Jason Abbott, they are dedicated in achieving their aims.   The Royal provides health services to women of all ages across NSW.   The funds raised go towards research, essential equipment, special services and health promotion in the community.

HOSPITALS

At Women in Focus Physio their belief is simple: All women are unique. Which is why they have created a clinic that treats only women. A woman’s body is different structurally, functionally and hormonally to men, so treatment naturally requires a specialised approach.  Whether you need assistance with back pain, pelvic floor weakness, bladder problems or returning to exercise, we use our specialised training to identify all contributing factors and create a holistic solution to your problem.  Alana antenates will find in their Antenatal Pouches a gift voucher to attend WIF’s pregnancy and postnatal exercise classes!
