Where can DES daughters go for their annual DES examinations?

The organisation DES Action Australia-NSW is often asked this question by enquirers. In 2007 the organisation finally received a listing of DES knowledgeable doctors from the Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists. The organisation has now been able to compile a list to help DES daughters. The list is subject to change and aims to provide us quality healthcare for our known or suspected DES exposure. We always need the names of healthcare providers who are informed about DES and sensitive to the needs of their patients. If you have such a referral, let us know by emailing

GPs are the gatekeepers for our health care and our referrals to DES knowledgeable specialists. It is helpful for DES daughters to have a GP with interest in DES exposure health. DES Action Australia-NSW has an information sheet to assist GPs with the DES examination procedure in the circumstance where DES daughters in isolated areas are unable to access a specialist for DES examinations. Contact DES Action Australia-NSW (02) 98754820 if you require a copy.
