FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

For people who need to drive in, there is a small multi-level carpark (paid) attached to the hospital however, if you can avoid bringing a car, there is ample public transport options. Many trams go right past the front door and we are only a short walk from Parliament station.

 

 

My organisation wants to pay by invoice. Is this option available for payment?

Yes. We are happy to send invoices to orgs who can't pay by credit card or who want to send a few workers along. Follow the instructions under the ticket description or if you are still unsure, call us at HRVic. (03) 93291500

 

 

My organisation is located in rural Victoria and it's difficult for us to reach the city for the start time or we want to run one of these sessions for more than 10 of our workers at our location, do you do Bloody Serious Facts training on other sites for organisations?

Anything is negotiable where hepatitis C education and harm reduction are concerned! Email us for details and enquiries at admin@hrvic.org.au or call (03)93291500
