There are many choices available to you for contraception.

Please note that if you are 26 years old and above you will need a GP referral to access our contraception services.  An appointment will be sent to you once we have received the information from your GP. This DOES NOT include emergency contraception (sometimes called the morning after pill) which can be accessed from any of our clinics.

All contraception provided from the clinic is free. We can supply, advise and help with all methods including: 

  • oral contraception (pills)
  • patches
  • condoms
  • diaphragms (caps) 

and long acting methods (LARC) which include: 

  • injections
  • intrauterine devices and systems
  • implants (under the skin in your arm) 

The doctors and nurses have expertise in all methods and can discuss them in detail in order to help you choose the one you think you will suit you best.


Visit here for a full description of each method. 


Emergency contraception - accidents happen! 

Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if a contraceptive method fails e.g a condom splits or pills are missed. 

The sooner you take action the more effective the treatment will be, so please call into clinic or phone us on 0118 322 7202 if you think you might need emergency contraception.

Two types of emergency contraception:

  • the emergency contraceptive pill (sometimes called the morning after pill) – this can be used up to 5 days after sex
  • the IUD (intrauterine device, or coil) – an IUD can be inserted up to five days after unprotected sex, or up to five days after the earliest time you could have ovulated.

 If you are not sure about timing, give us a call and we will discuss your options.

Visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/contraception-guide/pages/emergency-contraception.aspx for more information about emergency contraception.

Emergency contraception is available to patients of all ages. If you require emergency contraception call in to any of the 'walk-in' clinics, Monday to Friday 7am to 7pm, and Saturday 9.30am - 11.30am.

Please see our 'Visit us' section for times of contraception clinics
