Important update regarding our health service:

From February 2022 we will have a second Doctor!

Dr Alison Lyon will join Dr Miriam Brooks and our Registered Nurse Salicia Davies. Our clinical team is trauma informed and committed to the needs of women of all genders. They are also often quickly booked out and we are working hard to recruit another doctor.
 
Our Massage Therapist Larysa, will be working an extra day from February as well. So, if you are experiencing chronic pain give us a call. Larysa will then see you to assess your needs. 

BMWHRC health services prioritise ‘health disadvantaged’ women in the Blue Mountains.

This means that if you are on Centrelink benefits or have a Health Care Card we will take extra steps to make services available to you and encourage you to contact us for an appointment and assessment.

This approach to health equity is a priority in the Centre, existing clients who no longer meet a high-need criteria may experience changes to their regular appointment schedule & availability.

Please get in touch via the contact us page if you have any queries or would like to make a booking.
