A new clinic at Warwick Farm is proving a godsend for local women looking for a friendly, relaxed and safe place to attend to their health needs.
The free fortnightly Women's Clinic runs on Wednesdays at Warwick Farm Neighbourhood Connections in Gallop Street.
Manned by health nurses from the South Western Sydney Local Health District, it offers Pap tests, breast checks, pregnancy tests, postnatal checks, sexual health tests and information on a range of women's health topics including contraception, healthy living, menopause and emotional health.
"At the clinic we provide a longer consultation, which gives women time to discuss their health concerns," said women's health nurse Sara Hristov.
"Many women also prefer their health screening to be undertaken by a female worker, and as a women's health nurse, I'm able to provide this service."
The clinic works closely with local general practitioners and other services that women can be referred to if they require more specialised care.
To make an appointment call Warwick Farm Neighbourhood Centre on 9600 0600.
