Contraception and Sexual Health Clinics
Hope House Sexual Health Services provides sexual health care across the county. It is free and available to anyone who needs it.
Please check the clinic you wish to attend below in case of any change to clinic times.
You do not have to be referred by anyone. You can come to one of our walk in clinics or call our central booking line for an appointment 0300 421 6500.
Where to go
We have an experienced team working across the county but what is available in our clinics will depend on the staff covering the clinic on the day. If you ask for an appointment we will ask some questions to find the right appointment for you and if it is available at a local clinic near you.
What To Expect
Walk in clinics run between 8:30 and 11:30. However a lot of people choose to arrive early and unfortunately this does mean the clinic can be full from within a few hours. If you arrive and the clinic is full you will be seen by a nurse (triaged) to see what can be offered to you. This does not mean it will be on the same day.
We cannot plan who comes to a walk-in clinic so how long you have to wait to be seen can vary, this may be due to the number of staff on duty or there are a lot of patients with complex needs. The usual waiting time can be up to an hour, but it can be more or less. Having to wait to be seen can be frustrating but if we have accepted you onto our walk in list we will see you in that session.
All our clinics are closed on UK Bank Holidays.
In our booked appointments please ensure you arrive around 10 minutes before your allotted time to complete your registration form or complete the form in advance here and print it off.
You can complete your triage and registration form to print and bring with you.
