Contraception & Sexual Health
All the doctors offer confidential contraceptive services at either surgery. Emergency contraception is also freely available and strictly confidential. If you think you may be at risk, please contact the surgery - we will be happy to see you the same day if necessary.
Maternity services are provided mainly by the midwife and occasionally by the doctors. Once pregnancy has been confirmed (usually by a home test), please come into the surgery to pick up a maternity pack and fill in a few forms which we will pass on to the midwives. The midwives will then contact you and arrange to come and see you at home. Please ensure that you have read through your maternity pack before the midwives visit you.
All pregnant women, irrespective of age will now be offered a nuchal scan and combined blood test for Downs Syndrome. Information about the test is included in the maternity pack. The midwives like to see all ladies by the time they are 10 weeks pregnant if possible.
To make an appointment with the Health Visitor please contact the Tavistock office on 0333 2341901 and they will arrange a time to see you.
Minor Surgery sessions are held monthly at the surgery by Dr Best and Dr Hanson for the removal of different lumps and bumps. Megan, our practice nurse, also holds cryotherapy sessions fortnightly. You will require a referral from one of the doctors before being booked into our minor surgery and cryotherapy clinics.
