SHAC – COVID information page

Sexual Health & Contraception services (SHAC)

Call us on 01273 523388.

Under the current lock-down, we will aim to deal with your issue over the phone. We will only book you an appointment if you need to be seen. Please wear a face covering when you come to the clinic.

If you have no symptoms, you can order a home testing kit here.

If you are under 20 we have a walk-in clinic on Wednesday afternoon at Morley Street and a face to face clinic weekday afternoons at SHAC West – see below.

IF you are given an appointment, please do NOT bring friends or partners (unless we have requested they attend). Key workers or support workers are welcome.

We have limited availability for routine smears, coil and implant fits. Please call to discuss.

SHAC phone lines are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 0900-1630, Wednesday 1230-1700.

We strongly advise you to do all you can to protect your sexual health. Reducing your number of sexual partners and using condoms will help with this. Please check our website regularly and we will keep you posted of any further developments
