Contraception is free to all people in the UK. With more than a dozen methods to choose from, we can help you find one that suits you best.
See ‘Related Links’ for specific pages to guide you through the different contraceptive methods that are available at SHiP.
We also offer emergency contraception and abortion services.
Most routine contraception, including emergency contraception, is provided by GPs and some enhanced GP services also fit IUS/IUD (coils) and contraceptive implants.
Free emergency contraception is available to women aged 13-24 years from enhanced service pharmacies across the city.
