Unless you are aged under 18, sit and wait clinics are no longer available due to COVID-19. Our Devon Sexual Health clinics in Exeter, Barnstaple and Torbay are open but things are a little different and you can no longer arrive without an appointment. Here’s what to do;
• Anyone requiring our help needs to call first on 0300 303 3989.
• You will be booked onto a triage list and a nurse or doctor will call back as quickly as possible to discuss what you need.
• We are still able to provide emergency contraception (morning after pills), most methods of contraception, STI / chlamydia testing, pregnancy testing and referrals for abortion, if needed.
• We can also discuss any concerns about sexual health, contraception or worries about unplanned pregnancy.
• Some patients may be invited in to visit the clinic to see a nurse or doctor face to face, or perhaps to come and collect pills or medication. We can also post some things to a home (or friend’s) address, if needed.
FOR UNDER 18s ONLY – walk-in clinics are available at all three of our centres at the times below.
Please note masks are still required to be worn on attendance.
