None Of The Above

None Of The Above?

As a publicly funded sexual health clinic we are only funded to see particular groups of people. If you don’t identify with one of the above groups then there are still options for you!

General Practice (GP)

Most STI and HIV testing in NSW is conducted through GPs.It’s a good idea for everyone who is sexually active to get a regular check-up. We recommend you see a GP for this.

FAQS

Still have questions? No worries, we’ve got answers!

Where can I test for free?

We are only funded to provide free testing to certain priority groups. If you do not belong to one of these groups you are encouraged to get a sexual health check at a GP. Most sexual health checks in Australia are done in a GP setting. Call the Sexual Health Info Link (SHIL) on 1800 451 624, for advice on having an STI test at a GP if this is new for you. While some GPs bulk bill and provide free testing for people with Medicare, others will charge a fee. You will need to check with the GP centre to find out. If you don’t have Medicare, or cost is a barrier for you, call SHIL to discuss other options.

I have concerns, can I still speak with someone?

Call the Sexual Health Info Link (SHIL) on 1800 451 624, for advice on STIs and where to access a HIV or sexual health test.

I have had a needle stick injury – what should I do?

Call the PEP hotline on 1800 737 669 to discuss your risk and options available to you. This may include going to your nearest hospital emergency department.

We only see people for sexual exposure for HIV.

Do you offer contraception, cervical screening, or termination of pregnancy, or gender affirming hormone therapy?

No, as a publicly funded sexual health clinic we do not provide these services. We can make referrals for you to ensure you are linked in with appropriate care. You may also speak to a GP or call the Sexual Health Info Link (SHIL) on 1800 451 624 for further information.

I think I may have been exposed to HIV.

If you are concerned you may have been exposed to HIV, you can call us to start Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP). This is a medication that helps prevent you from acquiring HIV after you have been exposed. It must be started within 72 hours of exposure to be effective. You may access PEP through SSHC, a hospital emergency department, or if outside of our opening hours call the PEP hotline on 1800 737 669 to discuss your risk and options available to you.
