Contraceptive Pill / Patch / Vaginal Ring

If you have had a review of your pill/patch/ring within the last 2 years at our Practice, you can submit a request for a prescription online HERE.

If you have not had a review within 2 years or are a new patient to our Practice, please book a telephone appointment with our Physician’s Associate Saj, or any GP. It would be helpful if you could provide a recent weight and blood pressure reading during the appointment (from a home reading or attend the surgery to use the machine in Reception).

Please book an appointment with the Practice Nurse to discuss starting this or to arrange an appointment for your next injection.

Sayana-Press is an alternative to Depo-Provera that is self-administered. Please see the following video link for information on its administration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi2o-mlQJjc

Intrauterine Contraception

UPDATE 19/1/21 from Dr Coton: **Please be aware that due to restrictions placed on us at present due to the COVID-19 pandemic our IUD/IUS clinics are currently suspended. When we are able to restart clinics, there is likely to be a long waiting list for IUD/IUS fittings at WHMC as we catch up from the last pandemic-affected year. I would therefore advise you to arrange a fitting/change via the local sexual health & family planning clinics via https://www.sexualhealth.cnwl.nhs.uk/london-services/ or by calling 020 3317 5252**

If you are interested in having the IUD (copper coil) or IUS (Mirena coil) please read the information on https://www.sexwise.org.uk/contraception/iud-intrauterine-device and https://www.sexwise.org.uk/contraception/ius-intrauterine-system and watch the video below or via this link.

Following this, please book a telephone appointment with Dr Coton, Dr Curtis or Dr Ibberson to discuss further and they can arrange a fitting appointment with Dr Coton in a designated clinic.

If you have the IUD or IUS currently and would like to have it removed, please book a telephone appointment with Dr Coton, Dr Curtis or Dr Ibberson, who will then arrange an appointment for removal. Removal of IUD/IUS is still being offered by WHMC during this wave of the pandemic and there is not a waiting list for this (updated 19/1/21)


If you prefer, you can arrange for your IUD/IUS fitting/change at a local Family Planning Clinic. Please check out https://www.sexualhealth.cnwl.nhs.uk/london-services/  for further details on how to request an appointment.
