What is the CASH service? 

CASH stands for Contraception and Sexual Health (CASH), and the service provides free and confidential sexual health testing, contraception and advice and information across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire. 

CASH services are held at Cobridge Community Health Centre, as well as other clinics across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire - you can see a list of clinics at the bottom of the page.

You can either attend one of our Queue and Wait (walk-in) clinics or book an appointment.

(The following links will take you to further information on the NHS website)

For contraceptive procedures (for the implant/coil), you will need a consultation first. An appointment can then be booked for your procedure.

Most of our CASH clinics also offer STI testing and pregnancy testing too. See our list of clinics and what they offer below.

 

Our CASH clinics

Please Note: Queue and Wait services may close before the times shown; if you are planning to attend the clinic towards the end of the opening time please call the clinic’s contact number before travelling to see if they are still accepting patients. If you arrive for a booked appointment later than 10 minutes after the scheduled time you may not be seen.

We cannot promise to see all patients in our Queue and Wait clinics as sometimes demand exceeds capacity. It is advisable to attend at the start of the clinic as they can become full very quickly.
