Sexual health and contraception

Contraceptive services

Our practice nurses and doctors provide contraceptive services.

This service is not just about contraception but is about how people look after themselves during their reproductive years, including pre-conception and menopausal care and sexual health.

We also offer opportunistic chlamydia screening for those aged 16-24.

A full range of services is provided including coils, implants, sexual health screening and advice regarding modern family planning techniques.

Please ask for details of emergency contraceptive services.
