Our pharmacists are here to guide you through the procedure, ensuring your needs are addressed promptly and without charge. Take charge of your reproductive health with our accessible and confidential emergency contraception services, crafted to provide reassurance in urgent situations. Please note that while emergency contraception is an effective option, it is not a substitute for regular contraception, and we encourage individuals to explore long-term contraceptive solutions for ongoing protection. 

Additionally, we offer the availability of Bridging and QuickStart Contraception Service. This service allows our pharmacists to provide a 3-month supply of a contraceptive pill using Bridging contraception. This initiative is designed to smoothly transition individuals from emergency contraception to a more sustainable, long-term contraceptive solution. Throughout this period, patients could consult with our healthcare professionals for guidance on contraceptive options, empowering them to make informed decisions about a suitable long-term method that aligns with their preferences and needs.

Sexually Transmitted Infections

Most STIs can be treated, and treatment is most effective when started as soon as possible. For this reason, if you suspect that you have the symptoms of an STI, it’s important to contact your doctor or another point of contact who can confirm it – see below for more information about who you can contact. If you don’t treat the infection, it can get worse over time and may permanently damage your health or fertility, as well as the health of others if you pass it on. Some infections, such as herpes and HIV, cannot currently be cured, but there are medicines available that can minimise their symptoms.

The most common STIs are:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Genital Herpes
  • Genital Warts

Other STIs include Syphilis, HIV, and Trichomoniasis.
