Contraception

Contraceptive advice is always available from the doctors and nurses. We are committed to providing a confidential and easily accessible contraceptive service for our patients

Contraceptive implants and intrauterine devices (IUd’s, coils) are fitted and removed at the practice. This is done in a dedicated, long acting and reversible contraceptive (LARC) clinic. You will need to make an appointment at the clinic with any doctor/nurse for an initial discussion prior to insertion.
You can read our Practice Information leaflet about coil fitting here.

For routine, or emergency contraception, please see a doctor during appointment or open access surgeries.

The nursing team can see patients for repeat contraceptive pill supplies of the following brands, also for emergency contraception.
