Important Updates

Due to COVID-19 our clinics can no longer be 'walked into'. We have temporarily moved to telephone appointments. Please do not come to clinic unless told to do so. You will be advised by telephone before being booked in to attend in person. It is important that if you have been asked to attend one of our clinics, you wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth. Wherever possible please attend clinic alone. If there are any specific reasons you need to attend with someone else, this must be discussed during your telephone consultation.
23/11/2020 We are experiencing technical issues with our phone line at The Hathersage Centre (0161 701 1555). We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Emergency Contraception

Due to the rapidly changing situation with Covid-19 (Coronavirus) we have made changes to this information.

The most important change is you cannot attend any of our clinics without speaking to us first.

Please call us on 0161 701 1513 to discuss your needs anytime between 08:30 and 18:00 Monday – Thursday, Friday 08:30 - 15:30 and between 09:15 and 11:15 on Saturday. If we are not open, you can get emergency contraception from your GP or local pharmacy.



If you have had unprotected sex, or your usual method of contraception has failed, the Northern are able to provide all 3 options for emergency contraception which includes pills and a copper IUD. The most effective form of emergency contraception is the copper coil –IUD which can be fitted in a clinic up to 5 days after unprotected sex, or 5 days after ovulation.

 

It is important that we speak to you as soon as possible. Please call us on 0161 701 1513.

 

For more information about emergency contraception or to find a clinic/pharmacy near you please visit the NHS Choices website or alternatively call NHS 111.

 

If you have had unprotected sex then you may have put yourself at risk of an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infections) so it’s a good idea to get tested for STI’s as well. This can be discussed when you call.
