Description

The Auckland Regional Sexual Health provides free, expert and confidential sexual health care to people in the Auckland region.

Our focus is to provide sexual health care to those that really need to be seen by us.  This means that some people who have a sexual health concern may be guided to see their GP (family doctor), Family Planning or other health care service in the first instance.

Auckland Regional Sexual Health also welcomes all transgender and gender diverse people who want to access gender affirming healthcare. We will work with you to establish your transition related health goals and provide support around an individualised health plan that may include accessing other specialist services such as: fertility, voice therapy, endocrinology, gynaecology, urology, mental health, general and plastic surgical services as needed.

Services provided include:

  • diagnosis and management of sexually transmitted infections and other related conditions
  • sexual health counselling
  • gender affirming health care, including initiation of hormonal therapies, for gender diverse and transgender clients
  • Auckland Sexual Assault Service - Pohutukawa. Adult sexual abuse service including the care of related medical, nursing and social issues. Click here for further information:
  • sexual health education for clients and health professionals, including Peer Sexuality Support programmes for schools

How do I make an appointment?
There are three ways you can access the service:

  1. Your best option is to go to our website (www.ashs.org.nz) and complete a quick and simple online assessment, which will help us assess if we are the right service to look after your needs.
  2. You can ring us on 0800 SEX HEALTH (0800 739 432) to speak to a nurse.  We will need to ask you a few questions to make sure you are eligible to be seen by us and to make sure you are booked with the right person to look after your needs.  This will also let us know how urgently we need to see you and if your partner needs to be seen too.
  3. You can ask for a referral from your GP (family doctor) or primary care provider.

We want to make sure that everyone gets the sexual health/gender health care they need so if you are not sure where to go please check our website or give us a ring and we will either book an appointment at our service or we will support you to access the best service to meet your health needs.
