Your Healthcare Community Contraceptive and Sexual Health (CASH) team aims to provide a complete contraception and sexual health service which is non-judgmental, friendly and confidential. We welcome everyone, all genders, sexualities and all age groups.

Services are operated on a walk-in basis with no appointment needed (unless otherwise stated). We aim to be the centre of clinical excellence in sexual and reproductive healthcare and training. All the information you give is treated in confidence.

You do not need to live locally, or for your GP to refer you, or even be registered with a GP in order to access our services.

We offer the following services, which are all free:

  • Condoms: including the c card scheme
  • Contraception: pills, injectable, patches, implants (as walk-ins), implant removal/IUD/IUS (coils) (by appointment)
  • Emergency contraception
  • Screening: asymptomatic screens for STIs - blood/urine and self-taken vaginal swabs
  • Pregnancy: tests, options discussion, referral for termination of pregnancy
  • Treatment: for chlamydia infection and follow-up
  • Health and sexual health promotion: information, signposting and referrals

Please phone first if you require a specific procedure, such as having an IUD/IUS (coil) inserted, to ensure that this will be available when you plan to visit the clinic.

We are also happy to see young people up to the age of 24 for STI screening and treatment for chlamydia and emergency contraception.

Confidentiality

Contraception and sexual health services are confidential for young people including those under the age of 16 years. This means the staff will not tell others, such as family, GPs or schools about clinic visits. The only time that information may be shared is if there are significant concerns about a young person's safety or well-being. The staff will explain about confidentiality when young people visit the service. Please ask for more information about this if you would like to know more.

C Card

The C Card Scheme is for young people aged 13-24 to get free condoms in community settings. To sign up for the scheme you can attend any of the registered C Card providers around Kingston where you will have a chance to talk with a trained person about any sexual health questions you might have and be shown how to use a condom. Once you've been issued with your card, you can re-attend at any participating provider, show your card and collect your condoms. You can access the C Card scheme at any of the KU19 or CASH clinics in Kingston as well as many pharmacies, youth centre and other venues.

National Chlamydia Screening Programme

Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection in young people. There are often no symptoms but if left untreated it can affect your health in the future. The National Chlamydia Screening Programme recommends young people who have had sex are screened for chlamydia every year or every time they have a new partner, even if there are no signs of symptoms. A chlamydia test is quick and easy and involves just a urine sample for boys and either a urine sample or vaginal self-taken swab for girls. The same sample is also tested for another infection, Gonorrhoea, at the same time. You can come along to any young person's KU19 or Contraception and Sexual Health Clinic (CASH) in Kingston for a test or pick one up and do it from home if you prefer. The results can either be sent by text, phone call or letter. The treatment for chlamydia is a one-off dose of antibiotics which can also be accessed at any of the KU19 and CASH clinics.
