Our services

We provide a full range of sexual and reproductive health services from Beckenham Beacon.

Walk-in service

We offer a walk-in service on a first come, first served basis.

The clinic can be very busy, and we are not always able to see everyone on the day they attend. We recommend that, if possible, you access services online through Sexual Health London before you come to the clinic. Online services include testing for STIs, supply of the contraceptive pill and patch and emergency contraception (the ‘morning after pill’).

When you attend the clinic, you will be assessed (‘triaged’) according to your reason for attending. If you need a priority service, we’ll offer a same-day emergency slot. For everything else, you will be offered an appointment on the same day if we have availability, or you will be offered an appointment to come back on another day.

Priority is given to:

  • young people (under 18 years old)
  • those who need post-exposure prophylaxis
  • those who need emergency contraception
  • those with severe or urgent symptoms.

 Our walk-in service provides:

assessment of sexual health symptoms

treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

contraception, including coil and implant insertions or removals and Depo injections

post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)

pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)

signposting to support if you have problems with chemsex (using drugs as part of your sex life)

referral for psychosexual therapy

We run a young person's clinic for people aged 24 and under. It is a walk-in clinic that runs every Tuesday, 2pm to 5pm. We see people on a first come, first served basis.

Emergency contraception (morning after pill)

The emergency contraception pill is available from selected pharmacies, and is free if you’re under 25 years old. Our emergency contraception page has a full list of Bromley pharmacies providing emergency contraception.

You can also come in to us without an appointment, during our usual opening hours if you wish to discuss your options for emergency contraception.

Coil fitting or removal (IUD or IUS)

If you contact us to request a coil fitting or removal, we will book you a telephone appointment to discuss your needs.

During the phone consultation, we will:

  • ask for the details needed to schedule your fitting or removal
  • schedule an appointment for your coil fitting or removal.
