SERVICE ALERT COVID-19
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in the UK and national lockdown, our services are significantly affected. We are providing a limited service to St Helens residents only (unless you are under 18 years old, have been sexually assaulted, require PEP, are HIV positive or feel you have a particular vulnerability) and we are minimising face to face appointments wherever possible. (If you have already got an appointment with us this will be honoured and you should attend as planned.) If you do not live in St Helens, you can contact your local sexual health service or GP.
If you have symptoms suggestive of a respiratory tract infection (cough, fever, shortness of breath), have recently lost your sense of smell and/or taste or think you may have come into contact with coronavirus, see up to date advice on www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
ALL patients are requested not to attend clinic but to call 01744 646473 between 9:30am and 4:30pm, a telephone consultation will be arranged to discuss your sexual health/contraception needs. Should you need to be seen, an appointment will be made for you to attend.
If you are asked to come to clinic, please do not bring any children with you and where at all possible, please attend alone.
Following new guidance the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health no longer recommends the routine extended use of Long Acting Reversible Contraception (this includes IUS- Nexplanon, Mirena, Levosert and the IUD- Copper Coil). We are currently in the process of contacting all those who may be affected by this. If you have previously spoken to one of our colleagues and have been placed on a waiting list to have your IUS/IUD replaced, or an Implant inserted/removed or changed please complete the reschedule appointment form on our website https://getiton.org.uk/Pages/Cancel-Rearrange-Appointment.aspx once you have completed the form you will be contacted by a member of our team to discuss a suitable time for you to come in to the clinic. Alternatively you can contact the service by phone by calling 01744646473, please be aware the phone lines can get very busy and you may need to wait on the line.
