We offer a full range of contraceptive services within the practice. This includes fitting or removal of the contraceptive implant, fitting or removal of the coil, administration of the contraceptive injection or the prescribing of the oral contraceptive pill.

Our Practice Nurse is happy to see you for an initial assessment of your contraceptive needs and arrangements can then be made for the appropriate contraception to be put in place. In the absence of the Practice Nurse a GP will provide this service.

Please be aware that whilst it may be 3-4 weeks at least  before we can facilitate an appointment for a coil fitting or implant insertion, this is usually a lot quicker than having to access this via the Family Planning clinic outwith the Health Centre
