Are you thinking about contraception?

We can provide advice and prescribe all methods of contraception (except the vaginal ring - which you can find out more about on the NHS website).

Contact one of our sexual health clinics, or use the menu to read about the different types of contraception.

Our staff provide a free, confidential and non-judgemental service for all patients.

Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if your contraceptive method has failed (for example, if a condom has split or you’ve missed a pill). Emergency contraception does not protect against STIs.

Which type of contraception is best for you?

There are a number of methods to choose from in the UK. Find out what they are, how to use them, where to get them and compare different methods.

Book an appointment at one of our sexual health clinics

People of all ages can attend our sexual health clinics (including those under 16). We can offer advice on all methods of contraception (including emergency) and these can be prescribed or given if they are appropriate for you.

If you have an unplanned pregnancy we can help you with advice or a referral for further help.

You do not need a referral from your doctor (GP) for our clinics – please email
