    It’s not free for everyone and it’s not free everywhere. I went to a walk-in centre at 16 and it was free. My cousin tried at boots last year and she’d have had to pay for it if she hadn’t gone elsewhere. Add to that she has social services involved with her children (circumstances outside of her control), she really needed it as well

    This is very true and a very confusing situation. It really depends where you go and the area you live in. There will always be the option though. Usually, a drop-in centre or a nurse at the local GP should be able to help you.

    Sexual health clinics, GPs and other NHS services offer it for free. Boots, Superdrug, Lloyd's and so on are commercial pharmacies and may charge for them unless you have request slip from NHS. Simple as that.
