‘Morning After’ contraception works best when taken within 24 hours although it is still effective up to 72 hours after sexual intercourse. You can book to see a practice nurse or a doctor if you need emergency contraception. It will help you to get an emergency appointment if you can tell the receptionist why you need the appointment. The ‘morning after’ pill is also available over the counter at the chemist.
Thinking of having a baby?
Pre-conceptual advice is available from the Practice Midwife or from your own doctor. Please ask the receptionist to make an appointment.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible. Please complete the form and return to us at least 4 - 6 weeks before you are scheduled to travel for short stays abroad and 12 weeks before long trips. The vaccines have to be ordered as they are not normally a stock item.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
Please complete and return a copy of our Travel Questionnaire to the practice or email to email@example.com. Please give us at least six weeks BEFORE you travel. You can either obtain a form from reception or print one out by clicking on the link here
