We are excited to start pre-exposure vaccination for monkeypox. Currently there are very few doses available so those highest risk will be invited first. As more doses become available in the coming weeks, vaccination will open out to a larger at risk group. Please be patient there is no need to contact us, we will update in due course. Thank you.
If you require emergency contraception, walk in or call your local clinic during opening hours.
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.
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.
