Family Planning

Family planning is an important part of health care and full confidential contraceptive services are available here. Please speak to your doctor at ordinary surgery times. If you are prescribed the contraceptive pill you will need a check-up every six months. You can carry this out on our Health pod and do not need appointment to do this.

In the event of you having a contraceptive “accident”, there are hormone pills available which reduce the chance of your becoming pregnant if taken within 72 hours. The sooner these pills are taken, the more effective they are. These pills can also be bought from the chemist without a prescription.
