Equinox is a VAC operated health centre that caters exclusively to the
Trans and Gender Diverse (TGD) community.
General Practice, Counselling and Care Recovery Co-ordination services are currently being offered on site. The primary objective of Equinox is to reduce
the barriers that TGD people face in accessing primary health care services and
to contribute to the health and well being of this community. We offer mental
health, sexual health, hormone management and a full range of GP services. Equinox is currently in the process of
gaining AGPAL Accreditation.
PRONTO! is a peer driven, community based shop front approach to reduce barriers
to testing and early HIV detection. PRONTO! was established to reduce the
barriers faced by the Gay and men who have sex with men (MSM) communities. PRONTO!
Services include Peer Rapid HIV testing and STI screening and medical
practitioner facilitated Pre – Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) access clinics. Medical practitioners interpret STI test
results and offer treatment services on site.
We are currently seeking contractor General Practitioners / Sexual
Health Physicians who are interested in working in this unique space. Our existing team of GPs are happy to provide
mentoring and support to interested medical practitioners who are interested in
developing their skills and working with TGD and/or Gay/MSM communities.
Our current team consists of GPS that provide services to both Equinox
and PRONTO! clients, and some who just work with the PRONTO! program. We are interested in hearing from registered
medical practitioners interested in working with either or both programs.
We offer bulk billing services to clients of both programs. Clients
without Medicare are billed at the Medicare Rebate Schedule rates. We offer our contractor GP’s a fee split of
70% of all income received.
