Taking care of yourself during the COVID-19 crisis

News • 30 Apr 2020

TUH has been part of the education community family since 1972 and we stand right beside you through this current crisis. Teachers are doing an incredible job right now and we have a few ways to help look after your most important asset – your health.

Firstly, remember to keep up with your regular health maintenance. It may be a little challenging right now but it’s so important to keep you on top of your game. Most allied health services such as dental, optical, physiotherapy, podiatry and audiology are operating as normal. The government has eased restrictions on dental treatment - and now massage – so you can see to those issues you may have put aside in the last few weeks.

Not sure if your regular provider is open? If you are near Brisbane, our Fortitude Valley Health Hub continues to operate during the COVID-19 pandemic. Services available to members and the general public include dental, optical, podiatry, audiology and physiotherapy. Call 1300 709 076 to book an appointment.

We also have a network of optical and dental providers across Queensland, who offer discounts or agreed rates for TUH members for some services. Click here for a list of providers.

Secondly, did you know a number of clinical and allied health services are available by telehealth delivery? TUH provides coverage for various services that are key to your ongoing health and wellbeing, including dental, physiotherapy, psychology, exercise physiology, dietetics, podiatry, occupational therapy and more (policy, MBS and industry conditions apply). Click here for the full list of telehealth services.

Staying active is important too. While your gym is shut, we can help you keep up with your physical fitness. We’ve partnered with a personal fitness equipment company to bring members great home fitness products from Adidas Fitness, Summit Sport, Head Tennis and Arena Swimwear at exclusive discount pricing. Click here to find out more.

Lastly, wellbeing is also about treating yourself and your family, so how about some retail therapy? Our Wellbeing Benefits program gives brilliant every-day discounts from our partners at Rydges Hotel and Resorts, FRANKIE4, Adrift Clothing, 99 Bikes, Edsco, Woolworths, Coles, Priceline Pharmacy, The Good Guys and many more.

TUH aims to be the lifetime health and wellbeing partner for our members and their families and we’re proud to be on the journey with you – during the COVID-19 crisis and in the better days to come. Take care out there!
