Women's Health Clinic
See a Doctor or Nurse at BMWHRC
The clinic is staffed by female doctors and registered nurses. Currently, our clinic team is taking appointments for Tuesdays & Thursdays. The clinical team is also available during our free Under 25s drop-in Clinic that runs every Thursday between 3:00pm - 5:00pm during the school term.
Please allow for a 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 clinic appointments are bulk-billed (free under medicare).
Please contact us if you have any queries or would like to book an appointment.
BMWHRC will make efforts to prioritise & accommodate clients from low-income households in accordance with our constitution. Please bring along your Healthcare card if you have one.
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.
"Our clinic staff take a holistic approach to women's health"
The Blue Mountain's Women's Health Clinic is not a General Practice (GP) service.
We specialise in women's health issues.
However we can assist you with the following:
Cervical screening tests
Insertion of contraceptives (eg. IUD, Implanon)
Termination or pregnancy advice and referrals
Women's health issues
We also carry a limited supply of pregnancy testing kits, condoms, period products, dental dams & emergency supplies.
We also have emergency contraception (the morning after pill) available after consultation with a doctor or nurse.
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.
