Bromley sexual health services

Sexual health services

Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak, changes have had to be made to all sexual health and contraception services in Bromley as well as to the wider provision in London.

All sexual health and contraception community services will be able to offer, online services, telephone consultations and a postal or click & collect provision if applicable. Face-to-face contacts will be limited to those most in need but the earliest appointment available will be offered after an initial consultation with a clinician (usually by phone).

For up-to-date detailed information on service availability, residents are advised to access their usual provider via the services' websites or by telephone over the period of COVID-19 pandemic

Sexual health clinics

Beckenham Beacon Hospital provides a Contraception Clinic (serviced by Bromley Healthcare) and a separate Sexual Health Clinic (serviced by King’s College Hospital Trust) but both services are available by appointment following an initial telephone consultation.

For more information, please visit Sexual Health Bromley  for contraception information or the Sexual Health Clinic page for Beckenham Beacon.
