Emergency Contraception (Local Enhanced Service)

If you have had unprotected sex (sex without using contraception or you think that your contraception might have failed) it may be possible, if an accredited pharmacist is on duty, to be made a supply of the emergency contraception pill (morning after pill) over the counter at your local Northwood Pharmacy. This treatment should be taken within 3-5 days (72-120 hours) of having had unprotected sex. It is more effective the sooner it is taken. You may be entitled to this service with the cost of a prescription charge. Or in certain circumstances, if you are between 13 - 19 years this may be available free. This service is available at all Northwood Pharmacies but it may be advisable to telephone your local branch prior to your visit.
