Family planning appointments are available with a nurse to discuss all of your contraception options and concerns.
At the James Wigg Practice we provide a service to fit and remove coils (including copper IUCDs and Mirena coils) and contraceptive implants (Nexplanon).
We do these in special clinics on a Tuesday morning (Dr Sally Higginbottom) and Wednesday afternoon (Dr Jessica Baron). We keep the coils and implants in stock so you don’t need a prescription for them. If you are interested in using one of these forms of contraception please see one of the nurses for a family planning appointment or one of the doctors to discuss your options. Coils need to be fitted and removed during your monthly period. If unsure, please speak to a doctor or nurse before booking a suitable appointment . If you are having problems making an appointment in the coil clinic please call the Practice and leave a message for Dr Higginbottom or Dr Baron and we will endeavour to resolve the problem.
