Free Women’s Health Clinic

Clinics are staffed by female doctors and nurses.  There are usually longer waiting times when seeing a doctor or nurse for the first time.  All first appointments are for one hour.  Subsequent appointments are half an hour.  All appointments are bulk billed (free under Medicare). You must call to make an appointment – we can not take appointments via the internet.

The Women’s Health Clinic is not a General Practitioner (GP) service. We specialise in women’s health issues only.

We can assist you with:

  • Pap tests
  • Breast examinations
  • Pregnancy testing
  • STI/HIV testing
  • Contraception
  • Insertion of contraceptives such as IUDs and Implanon
  • Continence
  • Menopause
  • Termination or pregnancy advice and referrals
  • Women’s health issues

The clinic staff use a ‘wholistic approach’ to women’s health. This means they see women’s health as including a woman’s physical, emotional, social and cultural health and well-being.

The nurses are qualified and experienced in all these areas and work closely with the doctors.  You will need to see a doctor if you require prescriptions, referrals, diagnosis or further investigation into an issue.

We offer a free drop-in young women’s clinic (for young women 25 years and under) Thursday afternoons from 3.30pm – 5.30pm (only during school term). Young women can also access free counselling and participate in the drop-in Artspace.

We sell emergency contraception (the morning after pill) after consultation with a doctor or a nurse. We also sell pregnancy testing kits at cost price.
