The lismore clinic
Lismore is known for its LGBTQIA+ community and welcomes people from all over Australia to the annual Tropical Fruits festival. The Lismore Clinic aims to be LGBTQIA+ accepting and affirming, and to provide healthcare specific to the needs of LGBTQIA+ patients.
We can provide relevant advice about safe sex and screening for STIs based on your history.
Where appropriate, we can facilitate HIV post-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and offer advice about post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP).
Fertility and Family Planning
We can support you with starting a family and referrals to LGBTQIA+ friendly fertility services.
Screening for Cancer
Evidence shows LGBTQIA+ people have a higher
risk of cancer than the general population. We can discuss appropriate cancer screening based on your risk factors.
Cervical screening is recommended for any
individual with a cervix aged 25 years and over, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Everybody attending for a Cervical Screening Test can chose if they would like their clinician to collect their sample or if
they would like to collect their own sample.
Visit us to discuss the risks and benefits of gender-affirming care. Some of our GPs can

People with Intersex Variations
We can help you further understand physical implications of an intersex variation and/or
childhood surgeries. We can assist patients seeking fertility treatment.
