Urgent symptoms

For an emergency or urgent help outside these hours, visit your nearest A&E which is likely to be Warrington NHS Foundation Trust or Leighton Hospital at Mid Cheshire NHS Trust or The Countess of Chester NHS Foundation Trust.  Find your nearest urgent care service and find your nearest A&E.

Emergency contraception - IUD's

Emergency IUDs are the most effective form of emergency contraception and can be fitted at our sexual health clinics.

If you’ve had unprotected sex and want to know your pregnancy risk and options, you might like to use the SXT emergency contraception calculator. This will help you to assess your pregnancy risk but it cannot tell you for certain whether you are or will become pregnant.

Emergency contraception - contraceptive pills

Emergency contraceptive pills are available free from our sexual health clinics.

If you are aged between 15-25 years Emergency Contraceptive pills are available free from some pharmacies and GP practices.  Out of hours, emergency contraceptive pills are available from most NHS walk-in centres, minor injury units, and some hospital A&E departments. It is also available (at a cost) from most pharmacies.

PrEP- Pre-exposure prophylaxis

PrEP or pre-exposure prophylaxis involves HIV negative people taking HIV medication called Truvada as a method of helping to prevent HIV infection. Recent research has shown that if taken correctly, Truvada is highly effective at preventing HIV infection.

PrEP does not protect against any other STI’s, only HIV. You need to take other precautions in addition to PrEP to protect yourself from all other STIs. We recommend regular STI testing if you are on PrEP. You should have an HIV test every 3 month.

Further advice on how to take can be found at iwantprepnow

You can also find more information at Prepster

PEPSE (anti-HIV medication)

PEPSE can stop HIV infection taking hold after the virus has entered the body. However, it is an emergency measure to be used as a last resort. Please call us if you think you need PEPSE on 0300 247 0020. You can get this from Sexual Health , HIV clinics and Accident & Emergency.  Regular family doctors (GPs) don’t give PEPSE.

Rape and abuse

If you’ve been sexually assaulted, please don’t suffer alone. It’s important that you’re seen as soon as possible for physical and emotional support. You can call us straight away but we recommend you first contact your nearest Sexual Assault & Referral Centre (SARC) which is St Mary’s SARC. Their helpline is run by crisis workers and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 0161 276 6515.
