MSHC nurses and doctors provide the following clinical services to our clients
Testing and treatment for sexually transmissible infections (STIs)
If demands on our services mean that we can’t provide you a clinical service on the day you attend, we will offer you other options for care.
Free sexual health check
Sexually transmissible infections don’t always have symptoms, so you could have an STI without knowing and pass it on to someone else. That’s why, if you’re a man who has sex with other men it's important to get a regular sexual health check.
Melbourne Sexual Health Centre offers appointments for free and confidential sexual health checks for gay and other men who have sex with men at the following times:
TAG: Wednesdays from - 8:45 am to 12:30pm - 1:30 pm to 4:30pm
