We offer a variety of sexual health and contraception services that you can book online. To book, please click on the service you require at the clinic you wish to visit.

In order to run the appointment system efficiently, we have to allocate a set time for the visit. While we aim to see people as close to the appointment time as possible, due to the nature of our services we can’t always guarantee this.
When you arrive please inform reception that you have an online appointment and show your SMS (text) confirmation. Please check in 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.
Service options available
If you are not able to book an appointment for any of the services listed below, you are welcome to walk-in to any of our clinics.
Testing for sexually transmitted infections
This service is designed for individuals who have no symptoms.
You can order a ‘Test at home’ kit or pick one up at one of our clinics. This service tests for HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis B or C.
Individuals with a positive or reactive test can then book to see us for treatment or further testing.
If you require further assistance or advice then please book an appointment in one of our clinics. Please note that this appointment is for patients without symptoms.
Estimate your risk of falling pregnant.
You will be shown the nearest clinics with appointments and/or a walk-in service. Please send the results to your email/mobile so we can review them with you in clinic.
If you are estimated to be ‘high risk’ of falling pregnant, you can book an appointment for either the copper IUD or the ulipristal acetate pill. If you are estimated as ‘low risk’, you will directed to one of our walk-in clinics or a pharmacy for the levonorgestrel pill. Please note that the walk-in clinic can also provide you with support for starting ongoing contraception during your visit.
Please be advised, the copper IUD is 10 times more effective than the best emergency contraceptive pill and provides ongoing, hormone-free contraception for up to 10 years, so please consider this when making your selection.
If you are having difficulty with the calculator, or are ‘high risk’ and unable to find an appointment, please come to a clinic and speak to the team at reception about the possibility of being seen urgently.

Coil fitting IUD/IUS
The coil (Intra-Uterine Contraceptive Device (IUD) or Intrauterine system (IUS)).
An IUD is a small plastic and copper device that is put into your womb. It releases copper to stop you getting pregnant.
An IUS is a small, T-shaped plastic device that is put into your womb. It slowly releases the hormone progestogen to stop you getting pregnant.
The coil works for five to 10 years depending on the type fitted.
IUD/IUS appointments at Streatham Hill and Walworth Road are added to the system every Friday at 12 noon. Burrell Street appointments are added at 12 noon every day for an appointment the following day.
Please note: these appointments are for IUD/IUS fitting and replacement only. If you would like your coil checked or removed, please go to one of our walk-in clinics (please choose ‘stream 2’ when checking in at reception).
A small flexible rod is put under the skin of your arm which slowly releases the hormone progestogen. It works for three years and stops you getting pregnant.
Appointments at Streatham Hill and Walworth Road are added to the system every Friday at 12 noon. Burrell Street appointments are added at 12 noon every day for an appointment the following day.
