Family Planning & Contraception
The GP's provides a family planning services which include coil and implant fitting and removal.
If you would like to discuss family planning matter please contact the practice and make a 10-minute initial appointment with a GP. You may be advised to re-attend for a further appointment for the appropriate treatment or follow-up.
Contraception is free for most people in the UK. With many options 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 ofcontraception you're using to prevent pregnancy, use condoms as well to protectyour and your partner’s health.
Where to Get Contraception
Contraceptive services are free and confidential, including to peopleunder 16 as long as they are mature enough to understand the information and decisions involved. There are strict guidelines for care professionals who work with people under 16.
You can get contraception free from:
- most GP surgeries (talk to your GP or practice nurse),
- community contraceptive clinics,
- some genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics,
- sexual health clinics (these offer contraceptive and STI testing services), and
- some young people’s services (call 0800 567123).
Many of these places also offer information, testing and treatment for STIs. If you've been exposed to the risk of pregnancy, you're also at risk of catching an STI.
Before you make an appointment, make sure you’re as informed as possible about the contraceptive options available. People’s choice of contraception may vary over time, depending on their lifestyle and circumstances.
One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations.
It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.
Ideally, kids should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.
Visit the NHS website for a checklist of the vaccines that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK for free on the NHS, and the age at which you should ideally have them.

FCPs have extensive experience in the assessment and management of musculoskeletal conditions – such as back or neck or knee pain - and see these patients without the need for a GP appointment.
If you have bone, joint or muscle pain, you can see an FCP. The FCP will assess and diagnose you and can give you expert advice on how best to manage you condition. They can refer you for tests or onto a specialist service if necessary.
To book an appointment contact the reception and request an appointment to see the FCP. The reception team will check that you’re suitable and book an appointment for you.
