The Centre Exeter 31 Sidwell Street Exeter Devon EX4 6NN Tel: 01392 284982 / 284983

The Centre Exeter is open every day Monday - Saturday.

We now have a new longer drop-in 'sit and wait' session Monday - Friday 9.30am-3.30pm, where you can attend for any sexual health or contraception need.

On Saturdays, the Contraception service offers a 'sit and wait' session from 10am-1pm, where you can attend for emergency contraception ('morning after pill'), to discuss contraception or to collect supplies of your usual method (e.g. more pills), and for unplanned pregnancy testing and advice.

We do not offer walk-in sexual health testing or treatments on Saturday mornings.

Drop in 'sit and wait' sessions can get very busy and the wait may be long, so its usually best to book an appointment if your need is not urgent.

We have appointments available every day Monday - Saturday, and also offer late night appointment on Monday evenings in the Exeter and Okehampton clinics, on Wednesday in the Tiverton clinic and on Thursday evening in the Exmouth clinic
