Australia’s Queensland Government has announced an A$46m ($30.01m) investment to set up four new nurse-led clinics to offer tailored healthcare services for women and girls. 

The new clinics will be accessible seven days a week, from 8am to 10pm, without the need for bookings or referrals. 

According to the government, the move aims to address the specific health needs of women and girls in Queensland, addressing barriers such as financial constraints and transportation difficulties.  

The clinics will be located in places like shopping centres, ensuring easy access to public transport and parking facilities. 

With a focus on women’s and girls’ health, the new clinics will be open to anyone over the age of one.  

The services, including care for common ailments and women-focused healthcare, will be free of charge, even for those without a Medicare card.

People can access a range of healthcare services, mainly including treatment for minor infections, flu, colds, cuts and burns, and wounds, at the four clinics.  

Other women-focused healthcare services will include treatment for sexually transmissible infections, access to contraception, maternal health, advice on period and menopause-related issues and support and referrals for women victims of family, domestic, or sexual violence. 

The four clinics aim to complement existing general practitioner services.  

For health issues beyond the clinics’ scope, individuals will receive guidance to appropriate care levels. 

Queensland Health will identify locations for the clinics by assessing community needs, aiming to fill gaps in healthcare access.  

The latest initiative is part of the broader Queensland Women and Girls’ Health Strategy 2032, which seeks to enhance the overall well-being of this demographic. 

Queensland Premier Steven Miles said: “We heard loud and clear that women and girls wanted better access to tailored healthcare services in their communities. It’s why my government is backing new nurse-led clinics that offer the unique care that women need, free of charge. 

“These are the types of community healthcare facilities I will continue to champion – joining our nation-leading Satellite Hospitals and Albanese Government’s Urgent Care Clinics in providing better care closer to home.”
