All the doctors and nurses have had training in family planning and can give advice and treatment. If you wish to see a female doctor please ask the receptionist. The practice nurses are also available to see female patients to discuss well women issues and to do routine smears. Some of the doctors are also trained in contraceptive implant and intra-uterine contraceptive device (‘coil’) fitting. These procedures need assessment first and can only be booked after seeing a doctor to discuss the issues.
