Doctors and nurses can advise you about the different methods of contraception available here at the surgery. You will usually need to be seen before we can prescribe contraception.
- Contraception Pill
- Contraceptive Injection (DEPO)
- Contraceptive Implant
- Contraceptive Patch
The practice also participates in the local “free condom” programme and the chlamydia screening programme. Please watch out for notices about this if it would help you.
You can also attend the local family planning clinics.
Our practice nurses can prescribe emergency contraception (the “morning-after pill“) following a telephone consultation with the patient. The morning after pill is now available at cost price at most pharmacies, in addition many local pharmacies are participating in a scheme where it is supplied free to under 19 year olds.
