Using this service

Clinics are confidential. We are happy to see people alone, or with a friend or partner.

Once you have registered with us, you can attend any of our clinics for your contraception needs or advice.

We can offer a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter or an interpreter service for non-English speaking patients. This requires advance booking to try and guarantee that an interpreter will be available.

In the interest of safety, young children must be accompanied at all times by an adult, or placed in a pram during consultations.

Who this service is for

Anyone can use the service (including those under 16). We can offer advice on all methods of contraception (including emergency) and these can be prescribed or given if they are appropriate for you.

If you have an unplanned pregnancy we can help you with advice or a referral for further help. Additionally we offer vasectomy counselling and operations (these require a GP referral letter).

For sexually transmitted infection (STI) please refer to the tab on the left.

 

Appointments

People of all ages can attend our clinics, with the exception of Bromley Young People’s clinic which is for people up to the age of 25 years.

You do not need a referral from your doctor (GP) for the walk-in clinics – simply turn up and wait to be seen. Clinics can get very busy, so you may need to wait for some time to be seen – however we will try to keep you up to date on the length of your wait.

If the clinic becomes very busy, we may close the doors early so that people are not waiting if we do not think we will be able to see them. If we have to do this we will make you an appointment at the next available clinic.

Procedures for which you will need an appointment

You will need to visit a walk-in clinic prior to booking one of these appointments.

  • IUD/IUS (coil) insertion
  • Contraceptive implant removal
  • Contraceptive implant fit

If you would prefer a telephone consultation prior to a procedure, please email askfp@bromleyhealthcare-cic.nhs.uk to request a referral form.

You will need a referal to this service by your GP.

  • Vasectomy

These appointments are at Beckenham Beacon on a Tuesday evening.

It is helpful if you know the name of any medication you are you using.

If you’re coming to the clinic for emergency contraception please let the receptionist know as we will always make the time to see you.
