To book an appointment or access the nurse information, counselling and phone support

Rural Clients can call 1800 998 399 to access the nurse health information, counselling and support.
Appointments with a relevant healthcare concession card will be bulk-billed. For standard appointments with a medicare card but no concession, you will be out of pocket approximately $25 after the medicare rebate. However as prices can vary it is best to contact us to find out more about particular appointment costs.
Due to the high number of costing inquiries, please note the following test costs for clients:
STI testing – $20 (without a medicare card, you will also be charged for pathology)
Pregnancy testing (without medicare card) – $12
Please Note: Fees can be negotiated based on financial hardship.
Free creche facilities are available, please let us know if you will require them.
Interpreters and Bilingual Services
WHFS staff are happy to use interpreters or bilingual workers. If an interpreter is required for your appointment, please discuss this with us at the time of booking.
WHFS are hosting the Street Doctor van outside our premises on a Wednesday night for those who would like a drop-in, bulk-billed appointment.
