We're slowly reopening TAZ clinic and trying to get back to normal.  You still can't 'walk in' to TAZ for the time being, but we can now arrange an appointment if you need any of the following:

  • Contraception (such as the pill, implant, injection)
  • Emergency contraception (the 'morning after pill')
  • A pregnancy test (or help if you are pregnant and not sure what to do)
  • A test for sexually transmitted infections
  • Condoms
  • Information or advice about sexual health

To make an appointment, please call us on:

07795452161 or 01744 646473        

or email us at taz@sthk.nhs.uk

One of us will then call you back to take a few details and make your appointment.

(if you email we might still need to call you to get some info from you and arrange your appointment)

Thank you all for your patience and we hope to see you soon!

We know this has been a stressful and anxious time.
