Education, relationships, health and money as a looked after child

Contraception and sexual health

The Greenway Centre at Newham General Hospital Contraception can help you with:

  • Emergency contraception, such as the morning after pill
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections
  • HIV testing and counselling
  • Free condoms and safe sex advice

You don’t have to have an appointment.

You can also phone the LAC nurses on 020 7059 6575 or 020 7059 6578. They can arrange for you to speak to the sexual health nurse.

And you can go to your own GP for advice about contraception.

The Green Way Centre.


From the time a young woman starts her first period, she can become pregnant if she has unprotected sex.

Pregnancy tests that you buy at a chemist can tell you if you are pregnant soon after you have missed your period.

If you think you might be pregnant, you should talk to someone you trust. This might be:

  • Your carer
  • Your teacher
  • The LAC nurses
  • Your doctor.

You can also go to a SHINE clinic for help.
