We understand all our patients are different and that people need and expect a high and consistent standard of care, especially when it comes to their sexual and reproductive health.
Providing timely, supportive, non-judgemental care, as safely as possible, is what we stand for. It is something for which we have received recognition, from Australia’s leading healthcare assessment and accreditation provider, the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS).
Accreditation requires us to adhere to strict standards, processes and to monitor our clinical outcomes closely. As evidence of our commitment, we were awarded 7 Met With Merit Awards for demonstrating a high level of quality (above the requirements for achieving accreditation), meaning a culture of safety, evaluation and improvement was evidenced throughout our organisation.
In addition to our focus on exceeding healthcare standards, we believe in a supported patient journey and our model of care reflects this. As such, our prices include:
- access to interpreters and decision based counselling;
- 24/7 nurse on call aftercare service;
- all pre-care and post medical abortion follow ups;
- secondary medical and surgical options in the event of a medical abortion being unsuccessful;
- and all required ultrasounds and pathology (including STI screenings) for in-clinic patients.
Marie Stopes Australia is a non profit private healthcare provider. Our national network includes medical clinics and centres, as well as accredited day surgeries.
Some of the factors that influence the cost of services are:
- Which clinic you choose to attend
- Type of sedation chosen
- What kind of contraception you choose
- Whether you have private health insurance and what your policy covers
Most of our day surgeries are licensed for the purposes of private health claiming. Please check our clinic locations page to find out which of our clinics are licensed for this purpose.
When people can control their fertility, they have the power to control their future – improving the lives of their family and their community. Marie Stopes International transforms the lives of people around the world by providing them with the reproductive choices they want, where they are needed most.
A patient’s experience with us is about more than the services we provide. We work on improving our services as well as improving the world in which our patients live.
We believe in effective, creative and active advocacy, so all Australians can take control of their sexual and reproductive health.
