Visiting our clinics

Most of our clinics are open by arrangement only (the exception is East Oxford clinic on Rectory Road which runs some drop-in sessions for under 18s). Please book a telephone consultation via email / phone. Due to an increase in monkeypox cases in the UK, we will ask you extra questions when speaking to you to keep you and our staff safe.

Mask wearing and social distancing remain in place in all our sites. If you have a new continuous cough, a high temperature, or a loss or change to your sense of taste or smell, do not come to a clinic. Follow the national advice on coronavirus (COVID-19).

Bank holiday closure – Monday 19 September

Oxfordshire Sexual Health Service will be closed on Monday 19 September as it is the state funeral of Her Majesty The Queen.

If you have an appointment for that date, we will be in touch to reschedule for as soon as possible.

Please see below for urgent help or treatment when we are closed:

  • Emergency contraception
    If you have had unprotected sex, you can get emergency hormonal contraception (EHC) from some pharmacies. See oxme.info – list of pharmacies supplying emergency hormonal contraception (pdf). Not all of these will be open or able to provide EHC on a bank holiday – where possible, phone to check before you visit the pharmacy.
  • Sexual assault
    You can report a sexual assault and / or get support at the Solace Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC).
  • PEPSE
    If you think you have been exposed to HIV by having sex, go to an Emergency Department (A&E) as soon as possible and within 72hrs and say you need post-exposure prophylaxis following sexual exposure (PEPSE).
  • Advice
    You can use NHS 111 if you have an urgent medical problem and are not sure what to do.
