We're experiencing problems with our telephone lines and we're not able to book appointments at the moment.

We're working to fix this as quickly as we can and we're sorry for any inconvenience. 

We're sorry - our lift at Archway Centre for Sexual Health and Contraceptive Care is out of order and there is currently no step-free access to this service. We are working to fix this as soon as possible.

Archway Centre
is a sexual and reproductive health (GUM) clinic offering a range of free, confidential services, including contraceptive services and STI and HIV testing.
