Want to know how NHS digital uses your data? See our ‘GDPR’ section of the website for more information on latest updates to the policy and/or to opt out. 

You can now see a musculoskeletal physiotherapist practitioner for joint, muscle or soft tissue pain as the first point of contact instead of the GP. This gives you faster access to expert diagnosis, advice and exercises you need to start tackling the problem. The physiotherapist can also refer you on to hospital services and arrange tests where necessary. Please ask reception for more information or for booking an appointment.

Routine or Repeat Contraception

We provide a full range of contraceptive services including oral contraception, long acting (12 weeks )contraceptive injections, coil and cap fitting and Implanon implant insertion.  Please contact reception and they will arrange an appointment with the most appropriate person for your chosen method of contraception.


Emergency Contraception


If you have had sexual intercourse without using birth control or you think your method of contraception may have failed, emergency contraception, which is free of charge, can usually prevent an unplanned pregnancy. You should ask for an appointment with the doctor or nurse practitioner as soon as possible, but certainly within 72 hours.
Alternatively, you may wish to attend the Family Planning Clinic or the “morning after pill” may be obtained directly from a local pharmacy without seeing a doctor first. All consultations are completely confidential.

 

GUM Clinic

The local GUM clinic is at Weavers Court, part of Westmorland General Hospital. The clinic provides confidential advice, testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. They can be contacted on 01539 716706.
