Contraception & Sexual Health


Our Nurses give general contraception advice and provide the oral contraceptive pill.

Oral Contraception

Oral contraceptives (birth control pills) are medications that prevent pregnancy. They are one method of birth control.

  • If you are starting the oral contraceptive pill, please call the Health Centre to make you an appointment with our Practice Nurse Charlotte.
  • Repeat prescriptions for the pill can be provided by any of our nurses, providing we have issued a previous prescription.

Long term reversible contraception

Contraceptive implants can be fitted, replaced and removed at the Health Centre. Contraceptive Implants are fitted and removed by Dr Chris Allen.

We are currently not providing intrauterine device fittings a the Health Centre but you can access this service at the John Hunter clinic and Jefferiss Wing Centre (details below).

Please book a telephone appointment with one of these GPs to discuss further.

Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if your contraceptive method has failed – for example, a condom has split or you’ve missed a pill.

Emergency contraception can be obtained from the Health Centre. The emergency contraceptive pill ‘Levonorgestrel’ has to be taken within 72 hours, whilst ‘Ulipristal’ has a licence for up to 5 days after the unprotected sex.

Sexual Health

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are passed from one person to another through unprotected sex or genital contact. Find more information on the website. Please find a list of local sexual health services.
