The first person you’ll see is the receptionist
They’re trained, friendly and good listeners. They will ask you to write your name, date of birth and to tick what service you need from a list. You will then get a coloured number card for one of the following people, (depending on what you have come in for). You’ll be called by your number to keep your name private from others in the waiting room.
The Nurse can help you with contraception or emergency contraception (after sex), give you condoms, give you the contraceptive injection and patch, discuss and fit implants, coils and STI testing. You may need to answer some questions about your medical history, have your blood pressure taken and the Nurse might also need to know some things about your sex life. We aren’t being nosey; we just need to know these things to make sure that we give you the best advice. And remember, although you may feel embarrassed, we have heard it all before!
