As the Sexual Health appointments require both the Nurse and Doctor, we are unable to accommodate any bookings after 5pm, or on the weekends.
What to expect at your appointment
At your first appointment, you will be asked to complete a New Patient Form and see one of our Nurses, Jade or Diana, to take a detailed history.
You will then see your doctor who will go through the consultation process. You will then have the opportunity to provide specimens for testing.
To review results, this requires an appointment with your doctor. Please book this before you leave to secure an appointment within 3-4 days.
If you identify as attending the practice as a "SHIP" (Sexual Health in Practice) client, your appointment will be bulk billed.
If you attend the practice for another matter not related to Sexual Health, your appointment will be billed according to our standard practice fees.
