  • If you are having a face-to-face appointment, you will be COVID-screened before your appointment and when you arrive at the clinic.
  • You will need to wear a mask when coming to the clinic and a medical mask during your appointment. We’ll give you a medical mask to wear.

This page explains what to expect at your first appointment. Please also read our guidelines on what you need to know about your Family Planning appointment under the COVID-19 traffic lights system.

A MEDICAL RECEPTIONIST WILL GREET YOU

When you arrive at our clinic, the first person you will meet will be one of our medical receptionists. They will ask for your name and will check your details are up-to-date. 

 

Once your details are confirmed you can take a seat in our waiting area until the doctor or nurse is ready to see you. 

You are more than welcome to take a free information pamphlet from our reception area home with you.

QUESTIONS ABOUT YOU, YOUR SEXUAL BEHAVIOUR AND YOUR HEALTH

Our nurses and doctors are specialists in sexual and reproductive health and are able to talk to you about any sexual and reproductive health topic.

They will ask about your health history as this may affect the advice they give you. For example, if you are a smoker, they may suggest a different type of contraception for you than if you are a non-smoker.

They will ask about your sexual behaviour. All sex is normal but some kinds of sex are riskier than others. 

They can help you understand the risks so you can make your own decisions. 

YOUR APPOINTMENT IS CONFIDENTIAL

We think it's great if you can talk to someone close to you about sex, however we don't share any of your information with anyone unless you want us to or unless we think you’re at risk or you may hurt someone else.

We will always tell you if we are going to share your information with someone who is able to help you.
