Can I get the morning after pill free?

Yes, you can get the emergency contraception pill (‘morning after pill’) for free from GPs and all sexual health clinics, as well as most NHS walk-in centres, pharmacies, minor injuries units and A&E. You can also get emergency contraception via SH:24 if you live in an area where it is commissioned.

If your local pharmacy cannot give you the emergency contraception pill for free, you should be able to buy it for around £30.

If you are over 16 you can buy Levonorgestrel (LNG) and if you are aged 18 or over, you can buy Ulipristal acetate (UPA).
