Contraceptive Services

Advice is freely available to all during normal surgery hours. We deal with all aspects of contraception including the pill, condoms, contraceptive implants and emergency contraception. If you require the morning-after pill contact the doctor preferably within 24 hours. It can still be effective up to 3 days later! These are also available over the counter at a pharmacy.

We are happy to provide contraceptive implants for patients from other GP practices.

Every Tuesday Sister Sue Aisbitt is in attendance for check-ups and advice.
