Family Planning & Contraception

Be assured of our confidentiality
Our staff are always approachable about any problems, particularly if you are anxious about contraception needs or sexual health worries. Anything discussed is absolutely confidential and will not be discussed with anyone else without your permission, whatever your age. Even the fact that an appointment has been made will not be revealed to anyone else.

Contraception
We can help you with all methods of contraception so that unwanted pregnancy can be avoided.

Free condoms are always available from Reception or asking any member of staff.

Most methods of contraception can be provided at the surgery including pills, coil fitting, caps, injections, implants, vasectomies and emergency contraception.

An appointment can be made with any of our Family Planning trained nurses, and a friend or relative can be brought to the consultation if wanted.

Emergency Contraception
This is provided in the form of tablets (‘morning after pills’) or by having an IUD (coil) fitted. It is important that you attend the surgery to be seen as soon as possible after unprotected sex has occurred. This means that the treatment given is more likely to prevent an unwanted pregnancy.

Like all our consultations, a request for emergency consultation is completely confidential. Please never be put off if you are told that the doctors or nurses are fully booked. A polite but insistent request for a same day appointment is all that is required. It is important that you are seen as soon as possible.
