SHFPACT is now open for clinical and counselling services from Monday 10 January 2022.
Sexual Health and Family Planning ACT (SHFPACT) continues to provide consultations for a range of sexual and reproductive health needs. With the announcement of changing public health restrictions in the ACT, if you have not already had your appointment confirmed, please telephone Reception. All new appointment bookings will be confirmed after a telephone call.
Most clients will receive a text message to confirm their appointment. SHFPACT may have to cancel appointments at short notice due to the impact of COVID-19 exposure on our staff numbers, and we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause clients.
Consultations that do not require an examination or procedure will generally be provided by telehealth. If in doubt, please contact Reception directly to confirm the best appointment type for you.
To make an appointment in 2022, please contact us or call 02 6247 3077. Our staff will assist you to make an appointment with our doctors/nurses, or refer you to other clinicians as appropriate.

The Cervical Screening Test is a simple test that is one of the best ways we have to prevent cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is preventable with regular cervical screening because pre-cancerous changes can be found and easily treated so that cancer does not develop.
