Please note that due to the latest national lockdown, we are offering limited services. Due to COVID-19 our clinics can no longer be 'walked into'. We have temporarily moved to telephone appointments. Please do not come to clinic unless told to do so. You will be advised by telephone before being booked in to attend in person. It is important that if you have been asked to attend one of our clinics, you wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth. Once you arrive in clinic, reception staff will offer you a surgical mask to wear. Wherever possible please attend clinic alone. If there are any specific reasons you need to attend with someone else, this must be discussed during your telephone consultation.
The Northern Contraception, Sexual Health & HIV Service is a partnership led by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), together with Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust (PAHT). In 2016, this partnership was awarded the contracts for providing integrated sexual and reproductive health services across the city of Manchester, and also for the boroughs of Stockport, Tameside and Trafford.
We offer routine, intermediate and specialist sexual and reproductive health provision including the testing and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, contraception and emergency contraception.
The service also provides easily accessible clinical advice and support to a range of health professionals including GPs, practice nurses, pharmacists, and other contraception, sexual health and HIV teams across Greater Manchester. The Northern co-ordinates postgraduate training for health professionals from across the North West.
How to access the service
We primarily offer next working day online bookable appointments, but we do also offer appointments for non-urgent concerns and for those without symptoms, and for some contraceptive procedures.
Our services are open to all ages. Most are ‘open access’, meaning you can refer yourself. Please check the opening time for each clinic location for details of services and how to access them.

I need an Interpreter
If English is not your first language, or if you have sight or hearing impairment, interpreters can be arranged to accompany you at your appointment. Interpreters are trained in clinical communication and they are bound by the same patient confidentiality rules as all other healthcare workers. If you need someone to interpret for you, please let the person who makes your appointment know when you phone us or when you walk in.
