19.10.2021 Our booking phone line is now up and running again

 

We are experiencing a high demand for our services and we are working hard to make sure that you are seen as quickly as possible.

Our colleagues on the phone lines will need to ask questions to help ensure that our urgent appointments are available for those who are most unwell.

Patients with non-urgent issues may wait a little longer for an appointment but most will still be seen within 14 days.

Your GP may be able to help with your contraception needs.  

Please be patient with our colleagues and thank you for your understanding.

 

We are open if you require Sexual health/Contraception care, please continue to call our central booking line on 01904 721111 and press option 1.

Central booking line is open from - Monday – Thursday 8:15am – 5pm & Friday 8:15am – 3:30pm. Saturday 9am-12pm.

You will be assessed by our team and one of our nurses may call you to discuss the best way to get you the care you require.

If you are aged 17 and under, you can text us on 07973 775692 to make an appointment Monday-Thursday 8.15am-5pm and Friday 8.15am-3:30pm.

 If you are unable to speak on the phone for any other reason (i.e. hearing impairment or at risk within your home) you can email us on www.yorsexualhealth.org.uk/york/contact-us/

I think I might be pregnant

If you have done a pregnancy test and it is positive this means you are pregnant. All tests, including tests you do yourself, are very reliable.

It's normal to feel a range of different emotions when you find out you are pregnant. For some it can be very difficult working out what to do, but there is support available to help you think through all your options.

If you want to continue the pregnancy you need to arrange to see your GP who can refer you to the community midwife team for your ante-natal care. Your GP can also be a good person to talk through your options with if you are not sure what to do. Click here for health advice on what to do if you are pregnant.

If you are undecided or if you want to arrange a termination then you need to contact the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) or Marie Stopes. They will talk through all your options with you and they can arrange for you to see a counsellor if you are still unsure about what to do. If you are sure that you want a termination they will arrange an appointment for you. Please click here for the BPAS website and here for the Marie Stopes website. Termination is free for most people.
