Contraception

The practice can offer a range of contraceptive services and advice. Please book an appointment with the Practice Nurse to discuss your needs. At the present time, we do not offer Implanon implants. Please see below for some general information on the subject of contraception.

 

Contraception is free for most people in the UK. With 15 methods to choose from, you'll find one that suits you.

 

Contraceptive methods allow you to choose when and if you want to have a baby, but they don’t protect you from sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

 

Condoms help to protect against STIs and pregnancy, so whatever other method of contraception you're using to prevent pregnancy, use condoms as well to protect your and your partner’s health.
