Sessions for these are run every fortnight at the surgery.

These are provided as part of normal surgery consultations and emergency “morning after” contraception can be prescribed. We run special clinics for coils and contraceptive implants or you may also, if you prefer, have these fitted in the family planning clinic at the Family Health Centre.

The Practice Nurse runs daily sessions to deal with problems for which a Doctor’s appointment is generally unnecessary and you can make an appointment by contacting the surgery.
