Free STI testing

Residents who are aged 16+ in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly can now order a free postal STI test through our digital sexual health service, SH:24.

A quick, confidential assessment will recommend the most appropriate kit for you, which can include tests for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV and syphilis.

Tests arrive the next working day in a plain envelope, sent via first class post. The kits include clear instructions to help you take your own samples at home and a freepost envelope to return your samples. Results will be sent to you within 3 days.


Emergency contraception

If you are 16 or over, you can order the emergency hormonal contraception (the "morning after pill") online from SH:24 and receive it directly to your home or another location of your choice. This service is free for residents of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

SH:24 provide the same emergency contraception as sexual health services, GPs and pharmacies and their clinicians are on hand to carry out your initial consultation.

Free contraception

Oral contraception is free on the NHS and from any of our sexual health and contraception services.

If you are 18 or over, you may also be able to order the pill online from SH:24 and receive it directly to your home or another location of your choice. This service is free for residents of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. SH:24 provide the same oral contraception as sexual health services, GPs and pharmacies and their clinicians are on hand to carryout your initial consultation.

Your prescription will be sent in discreet packaging by 1st class Royal Mail. You will not have to be in or sign for the package - it will fit through your letter box.
