Women’s Health

Specialist sexual and reproductive health nurses, trained to meet the physical, social and emotional needs of well women, conduct the clinic. We offer women a confidential consultation to discuss any issues regarding their sexual and reproductive health. The Clinic also provides a comprehensive opportunity for women to access regular cervical screening tests or to learn more about breast self-examination. Women may also need to seek clarification or further information about a personal health issue for themselves or members of their family. Unplanned pregnancy support is also a part of the service and is available to all women.
