Cervical Screening

All eligible women 25-64 years of age will be sent information for cervical screening. This is a simple procedure carried out by the nurse in clinic. This enables early detection of changes that can prevent more serious conditions occurring.

What is Cervical Screening?

Recently, there have been some changes to Cervical Screening. The sample collected is now being tested for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). You can find out more by clicking on the link below.

For smear tests we ask that female patients see our practice nurse. Alternatively, they can call the Locala service on 030 330 9500.

Contraception

The practice nurse can discuss all methods of contraception with you. We offer a full range of contraception including pills, patches, injections, emergency pills and implant and coil fitting. You can also get contraception from the locala clinic on (030 3330 9500).

Contraception Clinic

You can have a coil or an implant fitted in a clinic run by Dr Louise Bayliss.  These are popular methods of contraception that do not require you to remember to take a pill everyday.  Make an appointment to discuss this with Dr Bayliss.

Sexual Health

It is important women use extra precautions (condoms) to avoid sexually transmitted infections. Infections can be passed from one person to another through unprotected intercourse or close contact with the genital area.

Some women may experience symptoms which may include pain when passing urine or pain during sexual intercourse, an unusual discharge, a rash or painful sores around the genital area.

It is important to note some STI’s have no symptoms. Most STI’s are easy to treat so if you have any worries you can make an appointment with the nurse or doctor and attend for a check-up.

The Locala clinic is also a good place to access for full screening of all sexually transmitted infections. They are also able to provide you with treatment. Smear tests and contraception are also available at the clinic. Visit https://www.locala.org.uk/ for more information.
