Community Contraception and Sexual Health Service

We are a free, confidential contraception and sexual health service.

The Community Contraception and Sexual Health Service sees clients of all ages, male and female. Some clinics are dedicated for people under the age of 25 (the 4U drop-in service at The Zone) however young people are also welcome at all clinics.

The service we provide includes:

  • Emergency contraception
  • Full range of contraceptive methods
  • Sexual health advice
  • Chlamydia screening
  • Pregnancy tests
  • Pre-conceptual counselling
  • Help with unplanned pregnancies
  • Free condoms
  • Referral to other services, ie Pregnancy Advisory Clinic.

Appointments will be necessary at the Cumberland Centre, please ring (01752) 434429 to book. No appointments are needed for drop-in clinics. You can bring someone with you, however you may be asked to be seen on your own during the appointment. There is also a GUM (Genitourinary medicine) clinic held at the Cumberland Centre's CCASH suite on a Tuesday afternoon - appointments must be booked by ringing 01752 431124.

All of our staff are trained to respect confidentiality. We may need to share information with other people helping you, if you are concerned about this please talk to our staff.
