Bank Holiday Opening Times

posted by: Jonathan Shaw

Our three central clinics (Exeter, Barnstaple, Torbay) will be closed this upcoming Jubilee Bank Holiday Thursday and Friday. Please check the opening hours of your local service [lower down the page] before contacting them.

When our clinics are closed, Emergency contraception (the morning-after-pill) is also available free of charge from Walk-in centres, Minor Injury Units and some pharmacies – click here to find your local provider . We would recommend if you are planning to go to a pharmacy for emergency contraception that you call first to check there is a pharmacist on duty who is able to supply this medication.

If you think you have been exposed to HIV in the last 72 hours and require emergency PEP medication, this is available from all major A&E hospital departments when sexual health clinic are closed. Details about PEP and where to access locally are here.

EXETER, TORBAY AND BARNSTAPLE:

Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June 2022: CLINICS CLOSED

Monday 6th June 2022: Normal opening hours – The telephone triage list operating on Monday is likely to be BUSY so if you need a routine check or anything non-urgent, it may be better to defer calling for a few days.
