Our clinics will be closed on the May bank holidays

posted by: Don Leslie

Devon Sexual Health clinics in Barnstaple, Exeter and Torquay will be closed over the three bank holidays in May – Monday 1, 8 and 29.

When our clinics are closed, Emergency contraception (the morning-after-pill) is also often 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.

Our telephone triage system will be operating again from the Tuesday each week, but please note that this is likely to be busy and so if your enquiry is non-urgent, it may be best to wait until later in the week.
More information can be found on our website including options for postal testing for STIs and condom ordering for residents in Devon aged 25 and under via the C-Card scheme
Please note, our Barnstaple clinic only will be holding walk-in clinics for under 21s on Wednesday 3, 10 and 31 May, due to the loss of the Monday clinics in those weeks.
