Who we see

WSSHC provides free and confidential testing, support, treatment and management of sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and HIV/AIDS.

We are funded to provide care to people with symptoms of STIs, to people who have had sex with someone with an STI and to people at increased risk of acquiring STIs and HIV. This may include people living with HIV/AIDS, gay/men who have sex with men (MSM), sex workers, at risk young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people who inject drugs.

All sexual health clinics in NSW follow the eligibility assessment criteria described in the NSW Health STI and HIV/AIDS Strategies which focus on people at highest risk.

If you are not included in any of above groups, you may be referred to another appropriate service. Family planning, GPs (General Practitioners or local doctors) and other services can provide routine health care such as Pap smears, contraceptive services, breast checks and screening for infection in people at lower risk.
