"Our clinic staff take a holistic approach to women's health"

This means we see women's health as including physical, emotional, social and cultural health & wellbeing.
Our nurses are qualified and experienced in all these areas and work closely with our doctors.
You will need to see a doctor if you require prescriptions, referrals, diagnosis or further investigation into an issue.

IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING OUR HEALTH SERVICE

We currently have Dr Miriam Brooks, Dr Sam Critchley, Dr Helen Balkin and Sr Salicia Davies on staff. Our clinical team is trauma informed and committed to the needs of all women. 

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 general queries or call us on 4782 5133 if you would like to book an appointment.
