New ‘Play Safe’ sexual health promotion website


Welcome Zoe (Equal Opportunity Officer) back to the blog 🙂 – with an update on a new sexual health resource…


I recently learnt about this new website launched by NSW Health and thought it was a great resource to share.

Play Safe has a whole lot of info on sexual health and STI’s (Sexually Transmitted Infections), including symptoms, myths and facts, a blog, and even an option to send your anonymous sexual health questions to “Ask Nurse Nettie”– a qualified sexual health nurse!

On here you can also find a link to the #TakeBlaktion campaign – a sexual health awareness campaign targeting Aboriginal young people and championed by Steven Oliver & Elizabeth Wymarra from ABC’s Black Comedy. Black Comedy stars, Elizabeth Wymarra and Steven Oliver.

The page be translated into almost 100 languages which is awesome, and also includes a national search database to find your local sexual health clinics.

Our GPs at HCDS can assist you with STI and pregnancy tests and contraceptive advice. You can book online or by calling 8201 2118.

ShineSA is another great service for your sexual health needs, and is free if you are under 30yo and have a Medicare card, or are one of ShineSA’s ‘communities of interest’ (About SHINE SA – SHINE SA.
