Our Devon Sexual Health clinics in Exeter, Barnstaple and Torbay are open but things are a little different than before the COVID pandemic. 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 testingpregnancy 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.
