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 means 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.
SHQ welcomes and supports diversity across all our services, and across all our staff, and we are pleased to offer male and female clinicians.
We acknowledge there may be times clients wish to see a clinician of a specific gender. Please mention any preferences when booking your appointment – we will make every effort to accommodate these requests, but please note there may be times when this is not possible.
Clients may also request a chaperone if they wish.
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.
