Free NHS emergency contraception
Free NHS emergency contraception (morning after pill) for age 15-24
The morning-after pill as it's commonly known as is an emergency hormonal contraceptive pill which can be taken to follow unprotected sex to avoid pregnancy. It is recommended to take the pill as soon as possible after the sexual intercourse. If you require the pill, one of our pharmacists will carry out a short assessment by asking you to fill in a short questionnaire to establish if the treatment is suitable for you.
The pharmacist will advise you as to which contraceptive pill is suitable for you during a consultation. The morning-after pill is not to be used regularly as it’s only for occasional emergency use when another form of contraceptives was not used or failed.
If you require the morning after pill, please speak to a member of staff who will get you to fill in a short questionnaire. The pharmacist will go through the questionnaire with you and if it is suitable, they will supply the pill or they will refer you to another service if the tablet is not suitable for you. If you are not eligible for the free NHS service, we also offer private morning after pill service. Ask in-store.
