Welcome to Devon Sexual Health – providing sexual health services that support healthy relationships and sexual well-being across Devon (including Torbay).

Our sexual health and contraception services are confidential – even for those aged under 16 years old. No-one can access our patient records apart from staff working in our clinics.

Accessing our service during the COVID pandemic

We have implemented a telephone triage system for all of our clinics. This system will be in place for the duration of the pandemic. Our central telephone number is 0300 303 3989.

We have updated information on the provision of routine contraception during this pandemic here.

Self-requested STI testing by post is available for those aged under 25- more info
