Sexual Health Pop-up Clinic We believe that a targeted, innovative, and flexible response is critical to early intervention and curbing the recent acute rise in STIs across Melbourne, particularly amongst young people and people who may not typically reach out for health assistance. If left untreated, STIs can cause long-term effects on your body and its reproductive health. But the good news is that most STIs are curable, and all are treatable. That’s why we have launched a 16-week, FREE Sexual Health Pop-up Clinic at our Youth Hub in Glenroy that will be available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until September 2022. Our team of doctors and nurses have extensive experience in sexual health and are committed to providing our community with confidential and non-judgemental access to free sexual health services. It is recommended that if you are sexually active that you be tested regularly (every 6 to 12 months) even if you do not have any symptoms and are using protection. Services available Routine STI checkups Testing and treatment for people with sexually transmissible infections Medicare bulk-billed service to patients A nurse assessment and GP consultation Please chat with our team if you need some other assistance Opening hours Tuesdays: 2.00pm – 6.00pm Wednesdays: 2.00pm – 6.00pm The clinic will start operating on Tuesday 28 June 2022 and will run until Tuesday 28 September 2022 Location + Getting there Youth Projects Glenroy HQ at 6 Hartington St, Glenroy (Opposite Glenroy Station) Train: Glenroy Station is located directly opposite Youth Projects (a short 2–5-minute walk) on the Craigieburn Line Parking: free street parking is available surrounding the building Eligibility We mainly treat people under the age of 25, however people of all ages are able to access our sexual health services We are welcoming of everyone, of every gender, sexual orientation, religion LGBTQIA+ Friendly Sex worker friendly/inclusive Do I need a Medicare card?
