Contraception & Sexual Health (aged under 25)

Brandon Centre provides free and confidential contraception and sexual health services to young women and men aged under 25. Young people come to us to get advice and information about safe sex, pregnancy, sexually-transmitted infections and/or to discuss their sexual and emotional relationships. We are happy to see young people who have not yet started to have sex, who may still have worries and concerns.

We supply a wide range of contraception and can do tests and give treatment for common sexually transmitted infections. Our doctors and nurses have special training in sexual health and contraception. However, you do not always need to see a doctor or nurse – you can just call the Centre to pick up free condoms or to talk to our specialist team in reception.

If you are over 25 adult sexual health services are available at Margaret Pyke/Mortimer Market and the Archway Centre.

The CAMISH network confidentiality statement can be accessed here:  www.camish.co.uk/confidentiality
