Clinic Timetables

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Sexual Health Services have been scaled down with venues being closed or relocated and staff being resourced to alternative venues. We are also mindful of the need for social distancing. As such we are no longer able to provide walk-in or face-to-face services in a regular manner.

All patients requiring advice will undergo full clinical triage by phone with a qualified staff member in a timescale appropriate to their need.

Those requiring emergency contraception should in the first instance contact the contraception central booking line (number below) or seek advice via Community pharmacies - please click here to find those providing this service.

'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
