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.

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).

Vulval pain management

Some women experience persistent or recurrent pain in the vulva and the entrance to  the vagina. This may be during sex, whilst trying to use tampons, during activities such as riding a bike, wearing certain clothes or generally during the day without any specific trigger.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we may be able to help.

Contact us for a telephone consultation; you will then be given a clinic appointment if necessary.

Alternatively, see your GP who can refer you to our specialist sexual health services. You cannot directly self-refer for help with vulval pain – an initial consultation or GP referral is necessary.
