Contraception is required until menopause and if used correctly has a high chance of preventing pregnancy. There is a wide range of options and we're happy to help you decide which method works best for you. We provide a variety of methods including implants, intrauterine coils (hormonal and non-hormonal) and vasectomy.
As is the case across NHSGGC our services are currently facing significant challenges and these may affect our services at Sandyford. We apologise for any inconvenience and distress this may cause, and we wish to reassure you that all our services are open.
All of our contraception appointments are available to book online this generally works well and suits most of our patients. We understand that some people are finding it difficult to obtain a contraception appointment online. This is due to the number of appointments we can offer, do not always meet the demand of the number of patients looking for an appointment. We acknowledge that unfortunately, this means that once we have added a clinic the appointments get booked up very quickly.
Appointments are generally added on a weekly basis when we can see what our staffing levels are. This is to avoid patients booking appointments that then have to be cancelled which is very frustrating for patients and staff. We recommend checking as often as you are able to look for an available appointment.
