Dr Philip Goldstone, Medical Director

For doctors

Since 2000, Marie Stopes Australia has provided specialised, non-judgemental and accredited contraception, vasectomy, medical and surgical abortion, and dilation and curettage services across Australia.

We provide a shared model of care and offer all patients free interpreter, qualified precare, independent decision based counselling and 24-hour aftercare services to support them before, during and after their appointment with us, as they may require.

Our network of day surgeries is independently accredited with the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards and we monitor and report on our clinical outcomes regularly.

For women experiencing hardship, we offer reduced cost services through our community partners, a No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) and, increasingly, through privately donated funds. You patients can contact us to find out which of these options best suits their circumstances.

Refer a patient

There are several ways to refer a patient to Marie Stopes Australia and, in some cases, such in Western Australia, it is a legal requirement for any woman seeking an abortion to have a letter stating they discussed their decision to terminate with their doctor.

Medical abortion via telehealth

If you wish to refer a patient to our telehealth medical abortion service, we organise scripts for pathology and ultrasounds to be sent. However, if facilities exist at or near your practice it can simplify the process for patients and shorten the time frame until the medication can be prescribed and sent via courier.
