The contraception service supports individuals to make informed choices in relation their own contraceptive and sexual health needs.
The service is confidential and is available to all genders, including young people under 16.
The clinics operate on an appointment system
028 37 562 200
You will be asked to provide details including your name, date of birth, two methods of contact, your health and care number (if available) and the name of your General Practitioner (Family Doctor).
We will then contact you when appointments are available. We will endeavour to offer you an appointment at a time and location convenient to you.
If you require emergency contraception a member of the clinical staff will allocate you the soonest, appropriate appointment.

New pilot scheme
We are also delighted to introduce a pilot of access to emergency oral contraception and contraceptive pills free of charge online via SH:24.
SH:24 are award winning experts in sexual and reproductive health and work in partnership with the NHS to provide contraception and STI testing.
To access oral contraceptive pills, including the progestogen only pill (also known as “the mini pill”) or the combined pill, go to: https://sh24.org.uk/contraception/order
To access oral emergency contraception (‘morning after pill’), go to: https://sh24.org.uk/ec_now_order/age_and_postcode/new
Please note: Oral emergency contraception is more effective the sooner you take it after unprotected sex.
A copper IUD is the most effective method of emergency contraception.
Alternatively you can contact your local service on 028 37 562 200 during clinic hours.
