Family Planning Service

A full confidential Family Planning Service is available.  In addition to fitting the contraceptive implant, providing the contraceptive injection (depo-Provera), pills and patches, Dr McCandless is also providing a coil fitting service within the surgery.

Patients interested in any of the coils available should discuss this at an appointment with her.  Coils or intrauterine contraceptive devices can provide contraceptive cover for 3, 5 or 10 years and can be hormonal or non-hormonal.  They also have benefits beyond contraceptive purposes such as heavy periods and cycle control.

If you have had confirmation that you can register with the surgery you may print your own forms to complete at home by using the following:-

If your records are with a GP surgery within the UK use an HS 200 Form HS200 to register when your records are held with a UK GP Surgery

If you do not currently have a GP in the UK then you must use an SCR1 form HSCR1 for those registering from outside of the UK
