Comprehensive, confidential advice is available for everyone during normal surgery times. Prescriptions for oral contraceptives (the pill and the mini pill) can be given and contraceptive injections administered, by the Nurse Practitioners or the Practice Nurse. The fitting of coils and implants are performed by prior arrangement with a doctor.
Post Coital Contraception (Morning after Pill) The morning after pill is prescribable and can be effective up to 72 hours after unprotected intercourse. A coil can be fitted up to five days later and continues to provide contraception. This is available from Doctors and Nurse Practitioners. Patients may contact the surgery first thing in the morning and after speaking to the nurse will be offered a prescription that morning. If needed at weekends this prescription can be bought over the counter or obtained from the same day walk-in centre.
