In the state of Victoria, under the provisions of the Assisted Reproductive Treatment (ART) Act 2008, prior to a treatment procedure being undertaken a woman (and partner if applicable) must undertake counselling with an approved ART counsellor. This counselling session must occur prior to the commencement of treatment and before any medication can be dispensed to the patient.
Both patient and partner (if applicable) will need to attend the counselling session. The duration of the appointment and number of sessions required will depend on your treatment plan.
Our counsellors are available for appointments during business hours or after hours/weekends at their private consulting rooms.
To organise an appointment, during business hours, please contact our Patient Services Administration team on 1300 522 588.
Alternatively, if you wish to organise an after-hours or weekend counselling appointment in our counsellors’ private consulting rooms please contact the counsellor directly to arrange an appointment:
