Contraception and Sexual Health
A full range of contraceptive services is provided by the doctors during surgery hours or in the well woman clinic. IUCD (coil) fitting and contraceptive implant fitting is by prior arrangement after discussion with a doctor.

Cervical Smear Tests
We generally suggest that cervical smears are done every three years between 25-50 years of age and every five years from 50-65. If you feel your appointment is overdue, please check with the practice. The test can be done either in surgery or with a nurse by appointment.
