We have moved! Equinox is now located at our new premises at Ground Floor, 200 Hoddle Street, Abbotsford.

Equinox is a peer led Trans and Gender Diverse & Non Binary (TGDNB) Health Service operated by the Thorne Harbour Health, (THH), formerly VAC.  We consult regularly with the THH Trans Advisory Group and our patients to establish service needs and define priorities; and our practice reflects the outcomes of these consultations. Equinox and THH  believe that by working in partnership with the TGDNB community  we can provide a safe environment for gender diverse clients to obtain quality medical care.

Equinox is a health and well being service for the TGDNB community. We honour and support your informed decisions and will use your chosen name and pronouns whilst treating you with respect.  Our goal is to ensure positive health outcomes for all members of the Victorian TGDNB community.  Our services include General Practice healthcare, sexual health, hormone initiation and management, Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and Counselling.

The waitlist has  capacity to accept 175 registrations. If it has closed, please keep an eye on our Facebook page as we will notify community when we re-open it via that page.

If you require TGD affirmative counselling support, family violence support or alcohol and other drug support services, please contact Thorne Harbour Health 9865 6700 and ask to speak to the Therapeutic Services intake team. These services have their own waitlist (generally much shorter!) for access.

If you would like to have discussion about our services, external supports and other resources, please email our Nurse, Gabe at gabe.curtis@thorneharbour.org 

COVID 19 Update

Equinox is offering Bulk Billed Telehealth appointments to support patients that are physically distancing. Your doctor can call you to provide prescriptions, pathology and diagnostic request forms and attend to your general medical needs.

Medicare has applied eligibility criteria for patients seeking bulk billed telehealth services. To be eligible, you must have attended the practice on site at least once in the past 12 months. Some specific exclusions can apply to this rule. Please speak to the reception team to check your eligibility on 9416 2889.

Face to face appointments are available and can be booked online or by calling reception. Some of our GPs are only offering telehealth appointments online.

In response to COVID 19, our counselling services are all currently being offered via Telehealth.  Your counsellor will be able to provide access details.
