If you’re enrolled with us and are aged 14–24 years, you are entitled to a free consultation for sexual health issues.
How we can help
If you’re one of our enrolled patients aged 14–24 years, you are entitled to a free consultation for sexual health issues.
You can discuss contraception, management of sexually transmitted infections and other sexual health needs and learn about sexual health.
Sexual health consultations can include:
- access to information on sexual health, contraception and sexuality, sexual identity and orientation
- decision making
- condom and safe sex information
- pregnancy testing advice
- emergency contraception
- assessment of sexually transmitted infections
- disclosure of sexual abuse or coercion
- sexual orientation and LGBTIQ+ matters.
Local Doctors clinics and White Cross GP clinics provide a safe place for sexual health consultations. All discussions are kept private and confidential.
HPV – cervical cancer vaccine
A free cervical cancer vaccine is available for everyone, male and female, aged 9–26 years, including non-residents under the age of 18.
The vaccine offers protection against human papillomaviruses (HPV) that can lead to cervical cancer. Males are vaccinated, too, so they cannot pass the virus onto females during sex. For more information, talk to your doctor or practice nurse.

Where can I park my car?
Some clinics have ample parking, while others not so much. Please visit your nearest clinic’s page to find out more. We’ll also let you know if a clinic is close to public transport.
How long will I have to wait to see a doctor?
Most people in this country have to wait to see their doctor! That’s because people have different health needs and how long it takes to get the right help can be very unpredictable. It’s our long-held philosophy that you should be able to see a doctor on the day you need to – and not have to wait for days.
The most seriously ill people are seen first. The really good news is that you can now see on the clinic website pages what the expected wait time is at that clinic! That means you can find another clinic near to you with a shorter wait time, if need be, or choose to come another day.
What is ManageMyHealth and how do I join?
ManageMyHealth is a secure website that can receive your health information from your doctor’s system. You can use it to store other health information, too, such as other treatments you have received or other medications that you may be taking. This means you can access your personal health information from any device at anytime, anywhere in the world. If your clinic takes appointment bookings you can do this through ManageMyHealth as well as order repeat prescriptions. Your online Personal Health Record can be made up of:
- Consultation notes
- Laboratory results
Just ask the receptionist at your local clinic to sign you up to ManageMyHealth.
Where do I get my test results from?
When you have a blood test, or any other kind of test, your results will be sent to your clinic. If the results are normal, you will not be notified. If they are not normal, the clinic will phone you and discuss next steps. If you have a ManageMyHealth patient portal, you can find your results in there, once your doctor has reviewed and filed them. Or, if after two or three days, you are concerned about your results, you can call the clinic to find out.
How do I order a repeat prescription?
If you have a ManageMyHealth patient portal, you can order a repeat prescription online, otherwise please visit your clinic’s page and phone them.
