In most circumstances, contraception is free on the NHS.
The most suitable method for you will be dependent on factors such as your age, general health, medical and family history, current medication, smoking status and your lifestyle.
The only way to protect yourself against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is to use a condom. Other methods of contraception do not protect against STIs.
For routine combined oral contraceptive pill (COCP) or progestogen only pill (POP) access, please try to get this through your GP or pharmacy in the first instance.
Our service offers complex contraception clinics, for example coil fitting if your GP surgery has been unable to successfully fit this, or contraception for those with complex medical issues.
For purely gynaecological reasons we do not fit the levonorgestrel intrauterine device (hormonal coil), please consult your GP if a referral to gynaecology is required for this.
We do not offer sterilization, including vasectomy.
