Contraceptive Pill

You can order a prescription of your contraception by completing this form, alternatively paper request forms are available from Reception.

You will need to take a current blood pressure reading. If you do not have access to a home blood pressure monitor, you can use our blood pressure machine which is located outside Room 12.

If you have any problems with your medication, or would like to consider alternative contraception options, you can speak to one of our Practice Nurses, who will be able to advise you or refer you to the Doctor as appropriate. More information about contraceptive choices are available here.

In order to provide the contraceptive pill safely we need to ask you a number of questions. Please answer the questions below to the best of your knowledge.
