Contraception & Sexual Health Clinic

City Walls has a drop-in Contraception and Sexual Health clinic every Wednesday 3pm - 6pm. If our monthly staff training day falls on a Wednesday, this clinic will run from 4.30pm - 6pm. The dates of our training days can be found within the 'Half-Day Closures' section of our Opening Times page.

All registered patients are welcome but we will also see patients who would like an implant or coil fitted that are not registered with us. Implants can be done as a drop in, before 17:45, and for your convenience there is a bookable implants clinic once per month on a Friday. An appointment will be required for a coil.
