GPs Dr Christopher Kearney, Dr Damien Polioudakis and Dr Tim Johnston are accredited s100 HIV community prescribers.
This means they are GPs authorised to prescribe highly specialised HIV medication called antiretroviral therapy (ART) and have advanced training and experience in providing care to people at risk of HIV or people living with HIV (PLHIV). They maintain close links with local specialist and HIV services in Melbourne and participate in regular continuing professional development activities and education.
HIV is now considered a manageable chronic condition requiring lifelong treatment. HIV treatments have changed dramatically over the years and can now offer PLHIV a long and healthy life. s100 GPs play a vital role in primary and preventative health care for PLHIV.
Victoria Harbour Medical Centre is an inclusive health service and our GPs are committed to providing a comprehensive and confidential medical service.
We also provide PrEP and PEP consultations on an appointment system. PrEP can be prescribed by any GP. PEP consultations can only be provided by s100 GPs. Do not book an online appointment for a PEP consultation. If you think you need PEP please call and let us know you need a PEP appointment and we will always try and prioritise you or recommend referral to another PEP service.
As we a private billing medical centre, standard consultation fees apply for all services.
If you would like to transfer your HIV care to one of our s100 GPs please book a long (30 minute) appointment.
