Important information before registering for a PHR account and using our online booking service
Our online booking system has changed, to make it easier for you to manage your own appointments and details. Before registering for an account, please read all of the information below.
Please note that we also have a range of different types of appointments available. We open these in advance – this can be 48 hours in advance or 3 weeks in advance. If there are no appointments, please call us on 0300 124 0102.
Personal Health Record (PHR)
Your Personal Health Record (PHR) provides you with the ability to:
- Register with the Leicester Sexual Health service and manage your own details
- Book, cancel and re-arrange your appointments.
Please note, we are currently making some changes to our online booking system and the following now apply:
- If you are a Rutland resident, please call 0300 124 0102 to book an appointment.
- Only 1 appointment can be made online. If you need any additional appointments, please call 0300 124 0102.
The PHR will ask a series of questions to establish your care needs which will allow us to offer you the appropriate service. If an appointment is offered, this may be via telephone or a face-to-face appointment at your chosen clinic.
Important Note for Booked Appointments:
Please arrive 10 minutes BEFORE your appointment time. If you have not arrived by your designated appointment time your appointment may have to be re-booked.
This is especially important for appointments to insert or remove a contraception method involving a minor procedure (e.g., the implant, hormonal coil or copper coil). This will allow time for necessary investigations, including a urine sample and/or blood pressure check. Should you not arrive in time to do this, we may not be able to complete your procedure during your scheduled appointment.
If you want to change your contraception method (for example, to remove an IUD/IUS and replace with an implant, or, to remove an implant and replace with an IUD/IUS), please phone us on 0300 124 0102 before making an appointment online to discuss your needs. It might be necessary to book a double appointment, which can only be done over the phone. DO NOT TRY TO BOOK THIS ON PHR.
If this is your first time using PHR, you will need to register. You must only register for YOURSELF with YOUR OWN personal email address and YOUR OWN UK mobile phone number. Do not use shared email addresses and make sure no one else has access to your phone. By registering for a PHR, you are giving your consent for us to contact you using the email address and mobile number provided. We recommend password-protecting your phone and email accounts with strong passwords.
By registering, you confirm you are providing us with accurate, up-to-date information and the email address and mobile number you provide is secure and only accessible to yourself. Please take care to ensure the information is correct as it cannot be changed once submitted
PHR accounts that are in breach of these terms, by using someone else’s email address or phone number, will be deactivated pending identification verification to change the details.
There may be occasion when we will ask you to verify your identity.
Once you have submitted your details, a verification email will be sent to confirm you have access to this email account. Once you have verified the email by clicking on the link sent to your email address, you will then be sent a verification code via text message to your mobile phone number. Once you have entered this code correctly, you will be able to register for your PHR account.
Note: You will only have 3 attempts to enter your verification code.
Before proceeding to register for a PHR online booking account, it is important that you read the information below.
If you need access to any of the services listed below, please do not register for a PHR online booking account, as most of these services can be accessed online without an appointment.

If you have had unprotected sex and don’t want to get pregnant, you can take the Emergency Hormonal Contraceptive (EHC) pill (also known as the morning after pill) up to 120 hours or five days after unprotected sex. EHC is more effective the sooner you take it, so act fast.
