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.

What happens if I am offered treatment?

What happens if I am offered treatment?

If you are offered and decide to have free treatment in our clinics, the nurse or doctor will give this to you and discuss how to use it. You may then be asked about people you have had sex with recently who may also need treatment. This is called partner notification.

Partner notification is completely confidential. It helps you to tell anyone you have had sex with recently about treatment they might also need for an infection passed on by sex. The nurse or doctor will also be happy to provide any sexual health related advice or guidance, so please feel free to ask them any questions you may have.

You might also be offered a Hepatitis B vaccination, if you might be at a higher risk of coming into contact with this virus, and medication (PEP), if there is a high risk that have very recently been in contact with HIV.
