Contraceptive Services

Contraceptive Services

At the surgery, we off a wide range of different contraceptive services for our patients.

For information on what types are available and what will work for you please visit the NHS website or speak to one of the doctors/nurses at the surgery.

If you are between the ages of 16-25, you can also visit The Zone for all information on contraception and sexual health.

Coil and Implant

Whilst we no longer offer coil and implant fittings at the surgery, we are able to refer you for a fitting if this is your chosen method of contraception. Please book an appointment with the doctor or nurse for a discussion and further information. You can also contact the SHiP on 01752 431124 (Sexual Health in Plymouth) who can also fit/remove these.

Contraceptive Pill

There are many different types of contraceptive pill and the doctor or nurse at the surgery will consult with you to ensure that you are taking the correct one for your needs. Once you start the contraceptive pill, you will have review after 3 months to ensure it is working for you. If there are no problems, you only require an annual review with the nurse.


Depo-Provera is a hormonal injection which lasts 12 weeks. These injections are administered by the nurses, and often suit those who forget to take medication.

Permanent Contraception

Should you wish to have a more permanent method of contraception, please book a routine appointment with your GP.
