Changes to Contraception Services

We are changing the way we provide contraception services from

1st March 2019

Rather than having a single weekly drop in contraception clinic, we will give contraceptive advice during normal surgery hours, allowing more flexibility in the times you can be seen.

Those who prefer a drop in or evening service can be seen at any of local family planning services.
