About our service

We offer services for Blackburn with Darwen young people up to the age of 24, so, from your 25th birthday you will need to ring 01254 283888 for information about the All Age Sexual Health Service or alternatively you can see your GP.

Our services are walk in which means that we do not offer appointments (unless arranged by a nurse for a follow up consultation).

We recommend that you do not leave it till the last day to come for repeat contraception as we cannot guarantee that you will be seen that day.

Walk in clinics

Walk-in clinics are available during the week for young people who do not wish to make an appointment.

Sometimes the walk-in clinics can become very busy, and on occasions a temporary stop may be put in place to manage this.

We understand that this can be disappointing for those that may not be able to be seen that day, or may have a longer wait than usual.

In these situations our staff will make every effort to redirect you to an alternative service the same day, or to return to Brook on a different day.
