Community vasectomy

Community vasectomies, carried out under local anaesthetic, are provided by Tollgate Clinic for males aged 18 and over in west Hertfordshire.

Discussion of sterilisation is a routine part of contraceptive advice offered by health professionals.  Vasectomy is available for men who want to make a permanent and irreversible decision that they should never subsequently father a child.  All men requesting a vasectomy should first be fully assessed and counselled to establish that the procedure is the most appropriate intervention and is a voluntary act on their part.

Community vasectomies are available in the following clinics:

St Albans

Davenport House Surgery, Bowers Way, Harpenden AL5 4HX

Thursday and Saturday 9am - 5pm

Watford & Three Rivers

Sheepcot Medical Centre, 6 Cunningham Way, Watford WD25 7NL

Wednesday and Saturday 9am - 5pm
