Sexual Health Service
We can provide you help and advice on contraception, sexually transmitted infections and any other sexual health problems.
We offer a free, confidential and non-judgemental service which aims to solve your sexual health problems in the first visit.
We hope to see everyone, but if demand is high you may need to return for the next clinic.
Changes to our service due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We’ve put more details about these changes in the page below, and on the Safe Sex Berkshire website. These changes will remain in place until further notice.
You can also find out more information on the Safe Sex Berkshire website.
Until further notice, we’re stopping all on-urgent face-to-face appointments and will offer alternative arrangements.
Depending on your needs, this could include:
- An online video consultation, similar to a Skype or WhatsApp call
- Consultation over the phone
- Providing you with professional advice on how to manage your own care
For more information, or for advice and support, please call us or visit the Safe Sex Berkshire website.

You can visit one of our Garden Clinics without booking an appointment.
If you're signposted to us by your GP, please bring a referral letter as this can help speed up your treatment.
