Our practice nurses offer a comprehensive range of family planning including contraceptive implants. You do not need to be a registered patient at this practice to use this service. Please note that coil insertions and removals are at the local Sandyford Clinic rather than by ourselves.
Smear tests are normally carried out by our Practice Nurses and you will be invited by letter, from the Health Board, when your smear test is due. Smear tests should be carried out every three years, more frequently if the result is abnormal. The current age range for cervical screening is 20-60 years. Currently we have carried out smears for over 80% of women in the Practice for whom a smear is necessary. Is your smear due? Appointments are available - please make one now.
Please note that you will receive your smear result directly from the Health Board and not from the Practice.
