Sexual Health Checks at the Surgery
Book an appointment with our Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant for screening and advice on Sexual Health.
Please do note that we do not provide on-site phlebotomy service and if a blood test is required you will need to attend the local hospital.
We offer free condoms (including latex-free and female) for our patients only
Don't be shy - ask for 'a Purple Bag' at the reception. You will be handed a bag containing a mix of neutral and flavoured condoms as well as lubricants.
If you do require latex-free, female condoms or a specific size please ask the receptionist.
Book an appointment with our Practice Nurse, a GP or visit a Family Planning Clinic to discuss your options.
Please note that we do not fit coils nor implants at the surgery and you will need to attend one of local Sexual Health Clinics if you opt for that method of contraception.
- In UK contraception is free to all women and men through the NHS. For information on all of the available options read the Contraception Guide.
You can bring in a mid-stream urine sample and our clinical staff will check it for you and contact you with the result.

Self-testing kits for STIs

It is a good idea to get tested, especially if you have recently changed partners. Most infections can be cured.
If you have had unprotected sex within last five days there are emergency contraception options available. Please remember the sooner you act the more effective they are!
