There are some dedicated young people’s clinics – called the POINT clinics.

Reproductive and Sexual Health (Family Planning) clinics are usually walk-in clinics offering advice on all methods of contraception including emergency contraception. Other services include pre-conceptual advice, pregnancy testing and referral, advice on all aspects of sexual health, cervical smears and some sexual health screening.

GUM clinics are a mix of walk-in and appointment clinics offering sexual health screening, treatment of sexually transmitted infections and free emergency contraception. Some also offer clinics dealing with other genito-urinary conditions, such as recurrent thrush, and psycho-sexual counselling. 

The Point clinics are dedicated young people’s services offering sexual health and contraception advice, free condoms, HIV testing, emergency contraception, pregnancy testing and advice, and screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections.
