Our well women's clinic has been suspended until 2017. The main reason for this is the Nurse Practitioner has accepted a contract to work interstate. For most of our history our centre in North Hobart has offered 30 minute bulk billed appointments, recognising women's health needs are complex. This has provided a service for pap tests, sexual health and wellbeing, as well as lifestyles and general practice matters.
The limited Medicare rebate for Nurse practitioners and the changing policies on pap testing due in 2017 may also affect our ability to continue this service in its current form. In the next six months we will review the viability of this aspect of our service.
If women find it hard to find a replacement service please contact us on our Women's Health Information Line 1800 675 028 and we will do our best to find one near you.
If you need access to your file held at our service you can have it or a copy sent to your new provider, your existing GP or to your own address if required. Contact 6231 3212 or 1800 675 028.
