Family Planning Services

The Doctors and Practice Nurse are available for confidential advice on contraception matters. Please contact the receptionists for your appointment. Routine checks/repeat prescriptions for contraception are carried out by the Health Care Professionals.

We now offer the contraceptive implant at the surgery as part of the LARC Service. LARC (long-acting reversible contraception) are methods of contraception you do not have to think about every day. A flexible rod is fitted just under the skin in the upper arm. It lasts for up to 3 years and is over 99% effective. Please call the surgery to book an appointment with our Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Gaynor, to have this fitted.
