Sexual health and contraceptive services

Where can I get EHC locally?

Emergency contraception can be obtained free, by young women of any age from Brook, Terrance Higgins Trust, Sphere or GUM clinics.

You can find a list of pharmacists in Bedfordshire who can provide you with FREE Emergency Hormonal Contraception following a consultation with the pharmacist.

It’s best to phone the pharmacy first to check that the accredited pharmacist is on duty.

You can also obtain a prescription for EHC from your GP. You can purchase it over the counter from a pharmacy if you are 16 or over. It costs about £25.
