We also have a drop-in session in Whakatane on a Wednesday between 12-4pm, at Regional Maori Health Services. This location is private and does not advertise what services are being offered. There is free parking directly in front of the building for our clinics, or you can park on Stewart Street or the Gate 1 Car Park and walk past the clinical school to enter the Regional Maori Health clinic building.
Our EBOP Services Manager is available Monday to Thursday each week. Please feel free to call or email if you wish to see her.
Can someone else phone you if I can't?
We accept phone calls about you from anyone. You can phone us yourself or your family, friends, family doctor, police, social worker, school counsellor, nurse, midwife or any person you choose can contact us for you. We will not disclose information about you to them without your consent.
What happens if you contact us?
A nurse will answer the phone when you call us, day or night. We will always answer. You will be asked a few questions so that the nurse can best decide how to help you.
If you have been sexually assaulted in the last week, then we will arrange an urgent review for you. Please see the Your Options page for the choices of appointment that we will offer you.
We will also arrange an urgent review if you have any worries about your body following your assault - such as if you think you might be pregnant, if you have any symptoms such as bleeding, or if you think you may have an infection.
If the assault was more than a week ago we will arrange for you to see a doctor within normal work hours as soon as possible.
What happens after I see you?
We will help arrange a counsellor to talk to you - this is always helpful for your recovery. Sometimes we can also offer support to your family members.
