Contraception

All patients who are sexually active and who wish to avoid pregnancy should be using contraception. Women continue to need protection until at least a year after the menopause. All methods are available free of charge including free condoms. The doctors and practice nurses are always happy to discuss contraception and sexual health. Young people can be assured of absolute confidentiality and we are especially keen to give advice to this group of patients.

To make an appointment please telephone the surgery.

Emergency Contraception (Morning After Pill) Emergency contraception is always available from us if you have had sex without contraception or suspect failure of your existing methods.
