Medical support in Melbourne
« on: April 20, 2017, 07:29:00 am »
I have just moved to Melbourne and I am looking for medical support for HRT and assessment for GCS. Could any of you who live in Melbourne recommend medical practioners who follow the 'informed consent' protocol, please?

I'm in Sydney, so not really clear in what's available there, but I don't think there's informed consent.

Search for Northside Clinic and Prahran Market Clinic.

Northside and Prarhan Market Clinic will both refer to you have at least 1 session with a therapist, mostly to make sure any other issues are well managed. If you are looking for a surgical referral, either of these would be my option. You need to get a referral from an appropriately qualified psychologist or psychiatrist for that - there is no Informed Consent when it comes to surgical referrals.

As far as walking in to a random GP and walking out with a prescription? It probably happens, but you might have to try quite a few GP's before you find one that will. As I had already been on hormones for several years, I found that my local GP was happy to prescribe.
I'm blunt, cynical and sometimes outright rude.. I don't sugar coat stuff..

Equinox: https://equinox.org.au/
This is where I go. All the necessary details are on their website. Note; they have a long waiting list (you may not get in until September-ish) so contact them ASAP. If you're lucky, they may have an opening a lot sooner.

Northside Clinic is another one that is highly recommended though they also have a long waiting list.
