There are many different methods of contraception. Your GP or Nurse will discuss your choices with you to find the type that will work best for you.
Contraception is free for most people in the UK and allows you to choose when and if you want to have a baby. The only way to help protect yourself against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is to use a condom every time you have sex. Other methods of contraception prevent pregnancy but don't protect against STIs.
The surgery Clinicians are happy to advise on family planning issues; teenagers are welcome. Coil and cap fittings are carried out by our Practice Nurse. Implants can be fitted by Dr Balaji. The surgery is able to advise on emergency contraception and, where necessary, issue prescriptions for this service.
