Sexual health services are free and available to everyone, regardless of gender, age, ethnic origin and sexual orientation.

Services and advice are available from:

  • sexual health clinics (which can also be called family planning, genitourinary medicine
  • (GUM) or sexual and reproductive health clinics)
  • GPs
  • some pharmacies
  • young people’s services

If you are not sure which service is right for you, call NHS 111, and they will be able to advise you.

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.
