Support is available 

Due to Covid-19, we are offering services in a different way to keep you and our staff safe. We are still open and can often provide support without seeing anyone face-to-face. 

There are currently no walk-in services but if you want to be seen about a problem related to your sexual health please phone 0300 008 5522 between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm Monday to Friday.

Please be aware there may be a delay in answering the phone, but you will be given the opportunity to speak to a doctor or nurse who will discuss the options with you over the telephone.

We also have online services:

  • If you need the contraceptive pill, live in Hertfordshire and are 18 years or older, order on-line though the SH:24 contraceptive service. Discreet delivery to your home. 
     
  • If you need emergency contraception, live in Hertfordshire and 16 years or older, you can order free and confidential emergency contraception on-line from SH:24 Discreet delivery to your home. You can also contact Sexual Health Hertfordshire, your GP or local pharmacists for information on services they currently provide.   
     
  • If you want testing for STIs but have no symptoms, please order a free test through the SH:24 home testing service. Discreet delivery to your home. Please note that low-risk individuals will be sent tests for Chlamydia / Gonorrhoea but not HIV / Syphilis as these are less likely to be necessary. If you feel that you need these tests you can still order them online from Free Testing HIV
