Family planning advice

Family planning advice can be provided by your GP in the course of our normal surgeries.

We are happy to prescribe the ‘morning after pill’, but only after we have been able to explain its use. If you wish this particular service, please ask to see the GP within 72 hours of unprotected sex (maximum).

Dr Thompson is also able to offer Contraceptive Implants (Nexplanon).

If you are pregnant and thinking about a termination you can now self refer, or if you prefer you can still come in and discuss with your usual GP first.
