Our team of health advisors aim to address any concerns or questions patients might have about their sexual health, or the tests that they have recently done.
 

For patients who return to the DSC Clinic for collection of results, our health advisors will also go through the results, and share valuable information on how to manage the results or protect yourself from future infections.

To assist the public in managing their queries about their sexual health or risks, the DSC Clinic hotline (1800 252 1324) is available from Mondays to Fridays, from 8am to 11am and 1pm to 5pm. Our friendly health advisors will be happy to assist you if you have any questions regarding your sexual health.
