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.
Please discuss at your appointment changes to Cervical screening and your options. The primary test for cervical screening changes 12th September 2023 from cytology (testing the cells of the vagina or cervix) to human papillomavirus (HPV) testing, with the choice of self-testing.
The screening interval is also changing from 3 to 5 years depending on your history and results.

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.

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.
