Family Planning

The nurses and doctors provide a range of contraceptive services and advice. For your convenience, this is available every day in normal appointments.

The ‘morning-after pill’ must be taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse (but it is most effective if taken in the first 24 hours). If you inform the receptionist, you will be dealt with promptly.

Other contraception such as coil fitting, implants (Implanon) and depo Provera injections are available from the surgery. Please book a normal appointment with a doctor to discuss the options. When requesting any appointment for this kind of contraception service please inform the receptionist which service you require to ensure the doctor has the correct amount of time to carry out the procedure. Some procedures are only done by a specific doctor.

Coil fitting appointments are available on Tuesday afternoons.
