Sexual Health & Cervical Screening

Contraception & Sexual Health


We provide all methods of contraception including implants and IUCDs (copper coil and Mirena or hormone coil). Dr Hopwood carries out vasectomies. For further information please ask at reception or go to

Emergency Contraception

If you have had unprotected sex, you can use emergency contraception. Phone the surgery and ask to see a doctor. It is okay to use an urgent appointment for this so you will get seen the same day.

Sexual Health

You can have a sexual health check up at any age. For further information on chlamydia screening go to

Cervical Screening

Cervical screening is a method of preventing cancer by detecting and treating early changes which, if left untreated, could lead to cancer of the cervix. The screening test is offered to all women aged 25-64 and is carried out by our practice nurse. You will receive a letter when your test is due. Women are invited every 3 years until the age of 50 then every 5 years until 64. For further information go to
