Emergency hormonal contraception (EHC)
In Suffolk, young people between the ages of 13-24 who are fully registered with a Suffolk GP may obtain the EHC pill free of charge from participating pharmacies. For those not eligible to the free scheme it can be purchased over the counter from pharmacies at around £23.00. The EHC can also be obtained on prescription from your GP or local GUM clinics, such as Trotman Court in Ipswich. A short verbal consultation will be required for those without presription to ensure appropriate treatment.
