Contraceptive Services

We offer a comprehensive family planning service. Our nurses are trained and experienced in family planning procedures. We can provide advice and information on all methods of contraception including the prescription of the oral contraceptive pill, contraceptive injections, as well as the fitting of coils and diaphragms.

Sometimes contraceptive advice can be given by phone and please book a telephone consultation with a nurse if you think that is appropriate.

Emergency contraception (morning after pill)

If you need emergency contraception please make this clear to us and a healthcare professional will contact you on the same day. The school nurse at the local secondary school provides a limited contraceptive service to younger people. More information can be found on the NHS website.
