Important information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Until further notice all of our Queue & Wait, Test & Go and routine appointment services are suspended to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to enable some of our staff to be re-deployed.

Please call 01904 721111 (9am - 3pm) Monday to Friday to arrange a discussion with one of our clinical staff. If you feel the issue is URGENT e.g. you need emergency contraception, HIV post-exposure treatment or have new and significant symptoms, please let the booking team know. Our 'contact us' option on the website can be used but there may be some delays in responding to non-urgent queries. 

If you are under 18 or are living in a situation where you are unable to call us, please text us on 07980 973337. We will reply to you within 1 - 2 working days. If you feel your safety is at risk please contact the Police.
