There may be a waiting list to have a coil fitted and as a result you may have to wait a couple of months for this. If you require alternative contraception whilst you wait please inform Dr Irwin. The appointment to fit the coil will be 30-minutes with Dr Irwin and a health care assistant.
What do I do if I would like a contraceptive implant?
Dr Kristina Irwin and Dr Hannah Walch fit implants at the surgery.
Please contact the surgery and explain your request to the receptionist. If you have any questions or are uncertain then the receptionist will arrange for Dr Walch or Dr Irwin to contact you to discuss further. If you have no questions then the receptionist will ensure that you are added to the waiting list for implants. Please be aware that you may have to wait a couple of months before having the implant fitted. If you require alternative contraception whilst waiting please inform the receptionist who will make sure you are directed to a clinician who can arrange this for you.
