All GP’s offer routine contraception and sexual health advice.
In addition to this Dr Polley, Dr Nelson and Dr Wood are trained in fitting and removing coils and implants.
Patients will be booked for a telephone consultation to assess that you are suitable for the chosen contraception method.
If you require help, advice or support in these areas, please submit an PATCHS.
Unfortunately, due to complexities with funding for some GP work, we have had to make the difficult decision to refer patients back to gynae for pessary fitting, and for Mirena fitting if the woman is over 54. This is because we are not funded to do these specific procedures.
Your clinician will advise you at the time of your next pessary fitting that you will be referred back.
Any women over 54 requesting a Mirena fit or refit will be referred at the time of the request.
