Information for women

We are a service for:

  • Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander women
  • refugee and newly arrived migrant women
  • women experiencing challenging health or life issues who have significant difficulty accessing health services.

We can help you with your health issues, or if we are not the right service for you we can link you to a service that is better suited to your needs.

What we offer:

  • Doctor clinics for assessment, investigation, treatment and referral for pelvic pain, itch, period problems, menopause, continence, fertility issues, contraception and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
  • Nurse clinics for screening, assessment and education for women’s unique health needs. Services include Pap smears, STI testing and pregnancy testing and well women’s checks. Pregnancy testing and emergency contraception can be provided without an appointment if staff are available.
  • Aboriginal women’s health nurse and Aboriginal clinical health worker clinics for well women’s checks, health counselling and education, screening and assessment with the aim of increasing self-management of chronic conditions, groups and programs on women’s health.
  • Information and education sessions on health issues.
  • Emotional health and wellbeing services providing short to medium term counselling, short term case management and groups for women experiencing stress, loss and grief, anxiety or depression, or who want to address life issues that are impacting on their health and wellbeing.
