Confidentiality

All information you provide is confidential.

This means that the service is not going to routinely discuss you with anyone else.  This includes your GP and other departments within the hospital.

Even if you are under 16 you have the same rights to confidentiality as anyone else.

Occasionally though the service may need to discuss you with other professionals if there is a risk of harm to either yourself or to someone else.

The practice will continue to provide a professional and confidential family planning service tailored to the needs of the individual.

We are able to provide a full range of contraceptive services including implants and IUCDs.

If you require emergency contraception request an urgent appointment with the doctor or practice nurse as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse.
