Worried you may be pregnant?

  • We can do a pregnancy test for you
  • We can provide advice if you are unsure what to do about your pregnancy
  • We can arrange for an appointment for you to discuss your pregnancy options

We can provide advice if you are unsure what to do about your pregnancy, but if you have decided on a termination and do not want to be seen by the nurse and wish to self-refer you can contact British Pregnancy Advisory Service on 03457 304030 for a pre termination appointment if you wish.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions about anything you are not sure about, we are here to help you.

STI Testing

We offer:

  • Check & Go service (Full sexual Health Testing for Asymptomatic Patients)
  • If you have symptoms, you will need to visit our other site at Russells Hall Hospital GUM clinic.

Contraception Services

Booked and walk in appointments are available for all aspects of contraception and advice. Please Note: To avoid disappointment we advise if you plan to walk in please call on the day. Walk in patients will be seen on a first come first served basis. Depending on availability you may not be seen at that time but will be offered an appointment for another day. Patients under 25 are welcome at all our clinics.

We do not discriminate regardless of age, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.
