Contraception and Family Planning

All doctors give general advice about contraception. They can prescribe the contraceptive pill and give contraceptive injections.

IUCD (coil), IUS, caps and Implanon (hormone implant) are fitted by Dr Brooks, Dr McEvoy and Dr Wooding. Please make an appointment to see them to discuss these methods of contraception and to plan the fitting or replacement. They should be checked as advised by the doctor.

Some of the Practice Nurses can also provide family planning advice. They can provide contraceptive pill checks and give contraceptive injections.

Cap and coil fittings require longer than normal appointments. This will be arranged with you after seeing the doctor for an initial discussion, as above.
