Contraceptive and Sexual Health Services

Add to CPD

.....................................................................................................................................................................

1 October 2020 update to service: The CNWL Integrated Sexual Health Service continues to prioritise access to advice, information, testing and treatment to vulnerable and hard to reach groups and the organisations that support them. We continue to perform consultations by telephone where possible, and also offer face-to-face appointments according to need, including LARC procedures.

Our walk-in service is limited to those with urgent need (eg EC, PEP) and vulnerable patients. Access is via our Central Booking Office t: 020 3317 5252 (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm)

.....................................................................................................................................................................

CNWL provide comprehensive sexual health and contraceptive care across NCL. GP referral is centralised across all sites. Patients can also self-refer for routine contraception and STI care.

A pelvic ultrasound scan can be performed within the complex contraception clinics, there is no need to separately arrange this.
