There are a wide variety of contraceptive methods available – not just condoms or ‘the pill’. Choosing the right method which suits you and fits in with your lifestyle is important. All the doctors and nurses at the University Medical Centre are trained in contraception.
We are here to offer you advice and info to help you decide what method to choose and we offer a full range of contraceptive services, including IUCD/IUS and implants. This service is currently an initial phone consultation and any face to face appointments will be subsequently booked if required.
Pill Check / Repeats
Requests for repeat prescriptions of contraception can be made via the e-consult:
Please drop into the self-check area in reception to record your up to date BP and weight – no appointment necessary. Once the e-consult has been submitted please allow at least 72hrs for your review to be completed.
Emergency contraception - Students of the UoK can also obtain it from The University Nursing Service between Santander & Campus Security on Giles Lane, near the Grimond building on central campus between the hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday during Term Time. This service is currently offered as a phone consultation during the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
The nurse will assess you to ensure you have access to the right emergency contraceptive and will then organise a prescription via the duty Doctor for you to collect from a pharmacy of your choice.
Outside of these hours please visit Kent Sexual Health to find the nearest pharmacy for access to free emergency contraception for under 30’s.
Where contraception fails we believe that women should have the opportunity to choose the outcome of their pregnancy.
