CLINICS

Our Clinicians

SHQ clinicians have a high level of expertise and skill in sexual health. We are committed to professional development, and support other healthcare professionals to gain extra skills in the area of sexual and reproductive health.

There may be an extra health care professional in the room during your appointment. This person will be a qualified doctor or nurse up-skilling in sexual health.

This mean you will have the benefit of not one, but two, qualified professionals involved in your care. You’ll also be doing your bit to ensure the health care sector remains skilled and up-to-date with sexual health issues.

Meet Angela, one of our friendly Doctors

The majority of our clinicians are female, however, the extra healthcare professional referred to above may occasionally be male.

Please note that SHQ does not have specialist gynaecologists. If you need to see a gynaecologist, please ask your GP for a referral to another service.

If you have a general sexual health query, please contact the Sexual Health Helpline.

Interpreting services

Every day we see people from diverse backgrounds who have concerns about their sexual health. You can be supported during your appointment by professional interpreting services, either on-site or over the phone. Please bring your Medicare card.

Family or friends are unable to act as interpreters during a consult, so please be upfront about your needs when making an appointment. We may not be able to see you if you require an interpreter and one has not been pre-booked.

On the day of your appointment

Once you’ve made your appointment, you will receive an SMS reminder the day before.

Please Note: If you are 10 minutes late you may miss your appointment.

You’ll need to bring your Medicare card with you, and you are welcome to ask a support person such as a friend, partner or relative to come with you if you prefer. If you are a first-time client you will need to fill out some paperwork before your appointment. All your information will be stored confidentially. Please read the Clinical Services – Your personal information and privacy brochure for more information.

A note about Medicare: If you don’t have a Medicare card you are still welcome to attend our clinic, but you will be required to pay for any pathology.

Children at SHQ Clinic

SHQ encourages you to seek alternative childcare when attending an appointment. Questions might be asked by the clinician about your sexual health, and it may not be appropriate to have children present. It is also not safe to have children in the room If you are undergoing a contraceptive or screening procedure/s.

We understand that at times it can be difficult to organise childcare, but we would appreciate your support in this instance. Your safety is of great importance to us.

LOCATION

We are conveniently located at 70 Roe Street Northbridge, a five-minute walk from the Perth train station, or two minutes from the bus port. Street parking is available on Lake Street or in the City of Perth car park next door on Roe Street.

COSTS

SHQ is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation. Everyone, regardless of their age or which clinic they attend, pays only $10 per visit to cover administration costs.

Please note: pathology tests are usually free if you have a current Medicare card. If you don’t have a Medicare card you are still welcome to attend our clinic, but please ask staff about the cost and the procedure for payment. Overseas visitors can find out more information about Medicare here.

Contraception supply may incur a separate fee. Supplies such as condoms and lubricant are available over the counter at low prices. Most methods of contraception are also available to purchase after your consultation at reasonable rates.
