Contraception & Sexual Health
Services are available from all GPs and Dr Yasmin Maki is the female lead for this work. We can provide long acting reversible contraception such as coil fitting and implants. In addition 3 monthly contraceptive injections, contraceptive pill and condoms.
We are able to offer testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV and chlamydia. Chlamydia is a very common sexually transmitted infection, with sexually active young people having the highest risk. We offer screening by self-swab (for females) or urine test (for males). For those who test positive, the infection is easily treated with a course of antibiotics.
All services are free of charge, confidential and open to registered and non registered patients.
