Female Contraception Clinic
Female Contraception Clinics are held at each site, alternating on a weekly basis. There are lunch time sessions and also evening sessions for patients who work. At High Green the lunchtime session is on a Tuesday and at Burncross it is on a Thursday. Both sessions start at 11:40.
The evening clinics take place on a Tuesday at Burncross Surgery with a doctor and practice nurse in attendance.
If you require emergency contraception this should be taken as soon as possible, please inform the receptionists and you will be allocated a nurse triage telephone call. Due to a change in regulations for the emergency contraceptive, anyone over the age of sixteen can buy it over the counter from a pharmacy.
Some pharmacies are able to provide free prescriptions for the emergency contraceptive; we would advise calling the pharmacy first to check they can provide that service.
