PEP Line: 1300 767 161 – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Call the PEP Line 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 some hospital Emergency Departments in metropolitan and country Western Australia, sexual health clinics at Royal Perth Hospital and Fremantle Hospital, and some metropolitan GPs with a special interest in HIV. For clinics and doctors, 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.

For PEP access in rural Western Australia, it is recommended to call the PEP Line as staff can help ensure you get access to PEP.

Sometimes Emergency Department staff won’t know about PEP and say it is not available. If you have trouble getting PEP from a location, you can show them this website, or call the PEP Line 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. Alternatively, and if time permits, you can contact a different service such as a sexual health service, or an Emergency Department in another hospital.

If you call the PEP Line and you are recommended to take PEP, they will give you a referral number that you can give to the Emergency Department to make sure they are aware that you are wanting to start PEP.

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.
