We are moving! As of December 8, 2020, Equinox will be located at our new premises at Ground Floor, 200 Hoddle Street, Abbotsford. Our phone number will remain the same and we can’t wait to see you in our new purpose built space!
Equinox is a peer led Trans and Gender Diverse & Non Binary (TGD&NB) 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 TGD&NB 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 TGD&NB 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 TGD&NB community. Our services include General Practice healthcare, sexual health, hormone initiation and management, Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), Osteopathy and Counselling.
Equinox has currently closed the waitlist for new patients. With over 175 patients currently waiting for a first appointment, we have closed the waitlist until we have been able to bring these patients into the practice. We will review this regularly and hope to reopen the waitlist soon. People already on the existing waitlist will remain on it and we look forward to meeting with you in the near future.
