Wiltshire College Sexual Health Clinic
Wiltshire College Contraceptive and Sexual Health Service
Young people aged 16-24 are the group most at risk of sexually transmitted infections. In Wiltshire 1 in 12 young people test positive for Chlamydia, and in some areas of the county it is much higher.
Wiltshire college has a Contraceptive and Sexual Health service on campus, find out a bit more about the service and how you can use it!
The Contraceptive and Sexual health service is provided by the Terrence Higgins Trust. It is a free, confidential service, available to students at the college.
You can come to the clinic for:
Free condoms and No Worries C-Cards
Hormonal contraception including:
The oral contraceptive pill (combined and progesterone only)
The Depo-Provera injection
The contraceptive patch
Emergency contraceptive pill:
This needs to be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex so do not delay. The sooner it is taken after sex, the more effective it is. If you have missed the 72 hour window you can still visit the clinic as soon as possible as there are other options and support available.
Pregnancy testing and support
Testing for sexually transmitted infections including:
Treatment for Chlamydia
Advice and information on sex and relationships
Free Chlamydia test kits are available to under 25s via the www.freetest.me service.
The service is delivered by Jessica Oke, our community contraception and sexual health nurse. You can contact Jess with any questions or to refer a student to the service by emailing email@example.com or calling 07436 108043.
Health Promotion Specialists
There are a team of Terrence Higgins Trust health promotion specialists and volunteers who you may see from time to time on campus. They do training and raise awareness about sexual health. Feel free to ask them questions!
Jessica Oke is the nurse manager for THT Bristol and West and the clinic coordinator, if you would like to discuss anything regarding the service you can contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07436108043.
Virtual waiting rooms
We have virtual waiting room cards for each clinic. If you don’t fancy hanging around to wait for the clinic nurse to be free you can use a virtual waiting room card. You just need to fill in the card, pop it under the clinic door and the nurse will text you when she is ready to see you. Completely discreet and no hanging around!
