Sexual Health Service: 1800 675 859
(Phoneline is during business hours. Other times there is a recorded message).

Call the Sexual Health Service to:

  • Talk about your risk and if you would be recommended to take PEP
  • Find a location where you can get PEP

PEP is available from Emergency Departments of public hospitals and sexual health clinics. For sexual health clinics, it’s a good idea to call first to make sure they are open, and to let them know in advance that you are coming to get PEP. If the exposure happens after hours, Emergency Departments are often the best place to go to make sure you start PEP as soon as possible.

Sometimes Emergency Department staff won’t know about PEP and say it is not available. If you have trouble getting PEP from a certain location, you can show them this website, or call the Sexual Health Service 1800 number (above) or one of the sexual health clinics (if during opening hours) and ask them to speak to the staff member on your behalf. Otherwise, you can insist on seeing someone who does know about it, such as the on-call infectious diseases physician, or staff involved in providing PEP for clinicians who may have been exposed in the workplace.

Remember, Emergency Departments can be very busy places and staff may have to prioritise patients with acute injuries before attending to you, so be sure to consider that when deciding where you will go so you are starting PEP as soon as possible (and definitely within 72 hours).

The longer you wait, the less chance PEP has of working.
