Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic situation our normal service provision has been disrupted. We want to ensure that everyone has access to effective contraception and sexual health care during the COVID-19 pandemic. However in these unprecedented circumstances, it is necessary to deliver our services in a different way.
Your first port of call should be the place you usually access care for your sexual or reproductive health – that could be your GP or our service; please only access services if your need for care is immediate.
When you contact us you will be offered an appointment for a telephone consultation with an appropriate doctor or nurse to discuss your needs. If the doctor or nurse feels it necessary, a face-to-face appointment may be arranged. Unless advised otherwise you should not attend a clinic in person, but make contact by telephone instead.
Useful advice for women seeking contraception, abortion and other sexual and reproductive healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic can be found via this link: patient guide on access to contraception
For anyone who feels they are at risk of sexual violence or abuse, or is experiencing heightened mental health issues because of having previously survived sexual violence and abuse in the past, it is important to remember that there is help and support available to you – please click here for further advice.
