Contraception Services & How to Access Them

Please book a telephone or in person appointment with a doctor to discuss which contraceptive option may be best for you. If you do not wish to get pregnant, it is good to think about which option may suit you and your lifestyle.

Any doctor at NHG may offer advice about contraception and can refer you to the Coil, Implant or Vasectomy clinic if this is the option chosen.
