Sexual health

Use this guide to find more information about our sexual health services, abortions, contraception, and HIV prevention and support.


If you are thinking of having an abortion, call the central booking service as soon as possible after missing your period and getting a positive pregnancy test result.

Contact the Central Booking Service on 0345 345 9911.

An abortion can be carried out up to the 24th week of pregnancy. The type of abortion you get depends on how early or advanced your pregnancy is, but it is best to have an abortion before 10 weeks of pregnancy (a pregnancy is counted from the first day of your last period). The service will provide a full choice of contraceptive methods after the procedure.

A wide choice of locations and times are available to suit via the booking service. Calls are answered seven days a week from 7.00am-11.00pm. You will also have the option of leaving a message with your contact number and someone will call you back quickly.
