Our services

All our services are free and confidential  to everyone regardless of age or gender. We have clinics across Hertfordshire. Find your nearest on ‘Our clinics’ page. 

To book an appointment or check services at specific clinics call 0300 008 5522

We provide drop-in / walk-in clinics and therefore we cannot guarantee our waiting times. We also cannot guarantee if your chosen contraception or treatment method will be available at your first visit. We may occasionally need to ask you to return to a scheduled appointment or ask you to attend another one of our clinics. At excessively busy sessions, we may on occasion, find it necessary to limit what we can offer and / or the number of patients we can see. Please contact The SPoA on 0300 008 5522 for further information.

If you are going to have a procedure during your appointment and you have small children with you, please bring someone along who can look after them. We are unable to provide a crèche facility and it is not safe for your child to be unsupervised in the clinical room whilst you undergo your procedure.
