Vincent is a sexual health physician and manager of the medical unit at Kirketon Road Centre (KRC) in Kings Cross, Sydney. 

KRC is a walk-in primary health care service in Kings Cross, Sydney, which has been operating since 1987. The clinic provides sexual healthcare, including HIV treatment and prevention, treatment of hepatitis B and C, a needle-and-syringe programme, and an opioid substitution access programme. In addition, we provide general medical care for people from one of our priority populations, including at-risk young people, people who sex work, people who inject drugs, and people experiencing homelessness. Many of our clients are Aboriginal, and we aim to provide culturally-sensitive care. KRC is located on the land of the Gadigal People of the Eroa Nation, and we pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded, and never will be. www.theKRC.org
