Whenever this is required, it is most effective if provided within 24hours. Please remember this if you ring up and are told that there are only appointments left for “urgent” problems. We do consider this an urgent problem and will always prefer to see you the same day.
Our practice nurse is fully trained to provide emergency contraception and you may choose to see her rather than the doctor. (At weekends and over holidays, NHS 24/G-MED can also arrange for emergency contraception to be provided.)
