Contraception

All doctors can discuss your contraceptive choices, start pills and injections, and provide emergency contraception.

 

Practice nurses can carry out routine pill checks and give depo provera injections for women already using those methods.

 

A number of our nurses and GPs are trained and experienced in the fitting of coils and implants (please book a phone appointment first with one of them to talk it through).

 

All doctors can check and remove coils (please book a routine appointment). 

 

All doctors and nurses can provide you with a sexual health screening kit (for Chlamydia and gonorrhoea). These can also be collected at reception. If you have symptoms that concern you or require treatment after being notified by a sexual partner please book with one of the doctors or the express team.

If you are under 21 and have a condom card please ask at reception for free condoms.
