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 -
