If you need contraception we are happy to discuss the options available and help you choose the best methods for you. We provide a full range of contraceptive services including pills, injections, implants and coils.
The emergency contraceptive pill is available if you have had unprotected sex, however it is most effective if you take it in the first 24 hours after intercourse. If you feel you are in need of emergency contraception please arrange an urgent appointment with a doctor via reception.
Sexual Health Screening
Our doctors and nurses are able to offer advice, confidential testing and treatment for a range of sexually transmitted infections. We offer swab screening, and HIV insti testing through appointment. We also participate in the national chlamydia screening programme.
It is recommended that women between the ages of 25 and 49 have a cervical smear every 3 years, and those between the ages of 50 and 64 every 5 years. You will be invited for a cervical smear when you are due. You can make an appointment for this with one of our practice nurses. Thre results of your screening test may take several weeks to come through and will be sent to you via post.
