Family Planning Clinic

We run a weekly Family Planning clinic every Wednesday evening from 6.00pm until 8.00pm with one of our Practice Nurses and Dr Liza Chong or Dr Paul Nederlof in attendance. These appointments are pre-booked in advance.

Comprehensive confidential advice is also available during normal surgery times by all of the Doctors. We offer general advice on contraception and in particular oral contraceptives, injectable contraception and implants. Implants require a special appointment, which you will need to arrange with Reception. It is important that you discuss whether an implant is appropriate for you with your Doctor before making this appointment.

The ‘morning after pill’ or emergency contraception is prescribed when appropriate, but you need to seek advice within 72 hours.
