Sexual Health Services

Unfortunately due to the need to implement operational changes the Sexual and Reproductive Health Service will be offering urgent only referrals for Contraception and Sexual Health over the next two weeks.  This situation will be reviewed on the 31st January 2021.

However, we will continue to provide a triage assessment to all patients accessing the service.

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic we are able to offer an appointment only service in Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan, Brynmawr Health Centre, Oldway House Bargoed, Cwmbran Town Centre clinic and The Cordell Centre, Royal Gwent Hospital
