Sexual health services are free and available to everyone regardless of sex, age, ethnic origin and sexual orientation. In Shropshire clinics are provided in Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Whitchurch, Oswestry and Market Drayton, all providing methods of  contraception, (including long acting methods) and screening, testing and treatments for sexually transmitted diseases and HIV.

We also provide young peoples counseling, advice on termination of pregnancy, relationships and sex education in schools, chlamydia screening and the local Condom Distribution Scheme.

If you have a disability and you have special requirements, or if English is not your first language, it is advisable to  make arrangements in advance.

You can also access advice and help from GP’s,  pharmacies and sexual assault referral centres, not all service providers offer the full range of sexual health services, and it’s always best to check what’s on offer in advance.
