Contraception, Sexual Health and Cervical Smears

All our doctors are trained in family planning and in addition our practice nurses provide appointments for routine oral contraceptive pill checks. If you require advice and family planning guidance make a routine appointment with your normal GP in the first instance.

If you would like to discuss a contraceptive implant then you need to book in with Dr Hynds or Dr Tubman. Coils are only fitted by Dr Tubman.

In addition, we strongly advise all our female patients aged between 25-49 yrs to have a cervical smear every 3 years and patients aged 50-64 years should have a smear every 5 years. An appointment can be made to have a smear with one of our practice nurses at any of our sites.
