Contraception and reproductive health service
Comprehensive, non-judgemental contraception and reproductive health advice for both men and women
If you need comprehensive, non-judgemental contraception and reproductive health advice then our service works with you to offer you a range of options tailored to meet your needs.
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 go to the bottom of the page.
Using this service
Clinics are confidential. We are happy to see people alone, or with a friend or partner.
We offer cervical smears (by appointment only) - these are not available at Eldred Drive before 5pm or Bromley Y.
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.
Drop in clinics
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 drop 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.
If you are coming to the clinic for emergency contraception please let the receptionist know as we will always make the time to see you.
This service is provided only for Adults
