We offer weekly appointments at the Practice for family planning and contraceptive advice, which you will need to contact the Surgery and book an appointment for.
From 21 June 2017, we will be offering booked appointments only between 6.00pm and 8.00pm (last appointment 7.35pm) on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at Burnham Medical Centre. This will replace the Drop-In Clinic to ensure that we have sufficient appointments and to minimise waiting times for the patients who are attending. We will continue with our other Family Planning appointments throughout the week. We hope that you feel this is a positive step forward.
Our Family Planning Nurses are able to advise you on all methods of contraception and are able to issue prescriptions for the contraceptive pill or administer the depo injection.
Please note that we are unable to fit or remove coils (IUD) at the Practice.
If you use a coil for contraceptive purposes please call:
C&SH on 0300 123 2930 http://www.somersetcsh.co.uk/contact-us.
visit the WISH clinic at WGH http://www.waht.nhs.uk/en-GB/Our-Services1/WISH-Centre/
Please speak to you doctor if you have a problem with a coil which has been fitted for a purpose other than contraception.
Nexplanon Contraceptive Implant
If you would like to have the implant fitted you will need to arrange an implant counselling session with the Family Planning Nurse and obtain a prescription, which you would take to a pharmacy for them to dispense and bring it to your Implant appointment to be fitted.
Young Adults Clinic
If you are aged under 20 years you can attend our Young Adults Clinic held every Thursday 4.00pm till 6.30pm for contraceptive services.
