To minimise the risk to our patients and staff the Bexley Sexual Health walk-in clinic is suspended until further notice. We are still offering telephone assessments at Market Street Woolwich SE18 6QR, with same-afternoon appointments if needed.

Please call 020 8301 8920 between 09:30 and 12:00 midday to talk to a nurse.

If you are running low on your contraceptive pill, ring 020 8301 8920 between 09:30 – 12:00 Mon-Fri, and we may be able to prescribe and post them to you.


Referrals from a GP are required for community gynaecology services, psychosexual counselling and complex contraception, but please note these services are delivered at the Market Street Clinic in Woolwich.

We are closed on bank holidays.

When we are closed, emergency contraception is available from:

  • Your nearest Chemist (under 21s)

Alternatively, you can go to A&E at Queen Elizabeth Hospital but you may have a long wait as you will need to see a doctor (all ages).

Please note that clinics may have to stop accepting clients if demand is high.

Hi, do you offer any cervical screening? I do not feel comfortable with my GP doing it.
Thank you

I want to get my coil replaced
Can I come walk in , I am in sidcup
How can I contact the clinic
Thanks

Thank you for your enquiry.

Our Bexley clinic at the Albion Surgery in Bexleyheath offers coil removal, but not fitting.

We can replace your coil at any walk-in clinic at Market Street, Woolwich (SE18 6QR), or we have bookable appointments specifically for coils.

Our number is 020 8301 8920 and all our walk-in and bookable appointments are listed on the Oxleas website:

Is woolwich, market place still the only clinic that does implant removals and refit? Even if I live in Bexley?

Thanks

Hello I was thinking about coming on a Friday for a check up and was wondering the best time to come in for so that I am definitely seen by a nurse.
Thanks

Thank you for your question Junior - it is a 'walk in and wait' clinic at the Albion, which is open from 10:00 until 15:00. There is only one nurse on a Friday, so I would advise getting there at 10:00 to ensure you get a number. This will allocate you a slot with the nurse during the opening times, and you may have to wait to be seen - but it does mean you will see a nurse.

Hi,

Are walk in services only the times listed on this site? I'm having a hard time getting the time off work and I'm over 25.

Many thanks,
Alexei

Positive feedback for Gynaecological Doctor Jane Dickson and her nurse who performed a mirena coil removal in Minor Ops at Lakeside Health Clinic. I was very pleased with the professional and caring treatment received for this procedure. Previously, I have experienced great discomfort during this procedure but Dr Dickson was very warm and pleasant and the procedure was completed quickly and within a comfortable setting. The nurse present is to be commended highly too for her helpful and professional attitude. I would certainly like this feedback to be passed on to Dr Dickson, her nurse and the helpful reception staff (Ms Barber) at the Lakeside Health Centre today. Thanks to all.

Dear Jacqueline

Thank you so much for this very kind compliment.

We find our Gynaecology work really rewarding and it is so lovely to know that we are appreciated.

Kind regards

Dr Jane Dickson, Consultant
Charlotte Cushen, Staff Nurse
and the Lakeside reception staff.
