Rockdale Women's Health Service

We are pleased to advise that the Rockdale Women’s Health Clinic that provides cervical screening at no cost to your patient is transitioning to a general practice outreach model as of 1 January 2017. This service is available to all practices in the St George area* at no cost to the practice. This service is funded by us, and provided by Family Planning NSW.

We will be working closely with Family Planning NSW between 1 January 2017 and 31 March 2017 to transition the existing Rockdale Community Health Centre based women’s health service to the new more flexible and more efficient outreach model. The Community Health Centre women’s health clinic will close at the end of the transition period, and after that all services will be provided in participating practices.

GPs who have already expressed interest in hosting the outreach nurse at their practice in 2017 will be contacted by Family Planning NSW, during the transition period, to assist them with the new arrangements. If you are in the St George area and would like more information on how hosting the outreach nurse can support your patients, please contact:
