Various types of contraception are available, although we don't do coils and implants at the surgery. Please make an appointment with the nurse or a doctor. All contraceptive advice is completely confidential for all of our patients. Using condoms provides you with protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, eg HIV. These are available free at the surgery and sexual health clinics.

The intrauterine system (IUS) is a very effective method of contraception. It is also used to treat heavy periods (menorrhagia). It sits inside the womb (uterus). Once fitted, it works as a contraceptive for five years. Most women who use an IUS have no problems with it. It is sometimes called a 'hormone coil' because in the 1960s some intrauterine contraceptives were coil-shaped. Mirena® is the name of the only IUS available in the UK.
The contraceptive implant is a small flexible tube about 40mm long that's inserted under the skin of your upper arm. It's inserted by a trained professional, such as a doctor, and lasts for three years.

Medical Care when we are closed
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
NHS 111 Service: When our practice is closed you can still get support. You can get expert medical advice and useful ingformation by calling NHS 111 or through 111 online. The NHS service is available 24 hours a day and can provide information, issue prescriptions to a pharmacy of your choice, book a GP appointment, and, if necessary, refer people to emergency services.
Emergency: Dial 999 or go to your nearest A&E Department. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath do constitute an emergency (you must not dial 999 for anything other than an emergency).
