Our female doctors are specialists in the health matters that are uniquely important to women. We offer a safe space for you to discuss any of your health issues.
You can choose to have your smear done by either a nurse or a doctor. If you have any symptoms of concern it is better to have your cervical smear done by one of the doctors.
Regular smears (every 3 years or more frequently if you have any history of symptoms) are recommended for all women over 25 years, who are sexually active. Smear tests are proven to be an excellent way of identifying and preventing the development of cervical cancer.
We offer a range of contraceptive options for women, including IUCD and contraceptive implants (Jadelle). Doctors Jayne Davies and Pip Clearwater both do insertions and removals of IUCD's and implants.
Our nurses can prescribe the emergency contraceptive pill at low cost.
All registered patients under 25 are eligible for two free sexual health consultations per year, with the GP of their choice. A free sexual health service is also available for people under 22 years, who are enrolled in a GP practice within the WellSouth PHO, at our Sexual Health Clinic, which operates weekly on a Tuesday 3.30pm-5.45pm. No appointment is necessary.
We are funded to see you free of charge in the first trimester of your pregnancy. We can arrange testing, discuss options for care and support you with any early pregnancy complications.
Our doctors are happy to provide back up during your pregnancy. Normally we will meet you and your baby at about 6 weeks after the birth, for a well child check and immunisations. New mums are encouraged to make an appointment at the same time, to discuss contraception and any concerns they may have.
