Nepean Blue Mountains LHD has Sexual Health Clinics at Nepean Hospital and Katoomba Hospital

The Clinics provide FREE and confidential testing, treatment and management of sexually transmissible infections (STI) and HIV/AIDs. We provide a professional, caring and non-judgemental service which enables people to look after their own sexual health.

The multidisciplinary sexual health teams consists of Specialist Sexual Health Doctors, specialist nurses, social workers and administrative staff at both Clinics.

We prefer appointments. These can be made by calling the clinic. People may self-refer or be referred by their doctor.

 

Services provided by NBMLHD Sexual Health Clinics include:

  • Testing, treatment and management of sexually transmitted infections
  • Treatment and management of HIV
  • Vaccination, following STI assessment
  • Contact tracing
  • GP support and advice
  • Hepatitis clinic referrals
  • Specialist support and counselling for sexual health issues and people living with HIV
  • Phone information
  • Men Out West clinic (MOW) specifically for men who have sex with men.
  • Post Exposure Prophylaxis for HIV - PEP

We offer a specialist sexual health service for men who have sex with men (MSM).

The Men Out West (MOW) Clinic operates on Tuesday 3.30pm – 5.30pm and is staffed by a male doctor and nurse.

An Aboriginal Sexual Health Worker is available on Tuesday mornings.

Our social workers can provide counselling for a range of sexual health related concerns.

Who We See

All sexual health clinics in NSW have eligibility assessment as outlined in the NSW Health STI and HIV Strategies. This assessment criteria focuses on people at highest risk. 

Our target groups are:

  • people living with HIV,
  • gay men,
  • men who have sex with men,
  • sex workers,
  • people who inject drugs,
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders,
  • young people under 24,
  • people who have symptoms of an STI
  • people who have had sex with someone who has been diagnosed with an STI. 

If you are not included in any of the above groups, you may be referred to another appropriate service.  Family Planning, GP’s (local doctors) and other services can provide routine health care such as Pap smears, contraceptive services, breast checks and sexual dysfunction.
