Do you see female patients who are wheelchair users and have never had a Pap Test because they can’t get on the
examination table? Or women who are not able to do their own breast examinations?
Female wheelchair users should have equal access to health checks.
Nurse Practitioner, Lyn, will be available for consultations at a regular clinic at the Hobart Women’s Health Centre at
25 Lefroy Street, North Hobart.
The first clinic will be held on Wednesday 18th January 2012. Consultations are bulk-billed.
For clients with complex mobility or communication needs, it may be appropriate to bring a carer, but there will be
nursing staff onsite to assist .
A hoist & adjustable-height examination table will be available.
