Coronavirus information for patients

Some of our clinics, including Whittall Street, are open for pre-booked telephone appointments only. We are not seeing walk-in patients at this time.

If you have symptoms of an STI, need emergency or routine contraception, or have any sexual health concerns and need to speak to somebody, please call 0121 237 5700 (Monday to Thursday: 09:00 – 18:30 / Friday: 09:00 – 16:30 / Saturday: 10:00 – 16:00).

If you require PEPSE, don’t delay in contacting us during our opening hours. PEPSE can be taken up to 72 hours after exposure to HIV.

If you have a new, continuous cough and/or high temperature, please do not attend your appointment

Coronavirus advice

Internal (or “female”) condoms

Internal condoms (sometimes called female condoms or femi-doms) are like other condoms except they fit inside the vagina instead of covering the penis.

If they are used correctly they are 95% effective in protecting against pregnancy. Female condoms are made of polyurethane and are slightly wider than male condoms.

Not sure which type of contraception is right for you? Worried because you've had sex without a condom? Let us help you choose the right option.
