Amy Blades – Healthy Futures

Child Health Surveillance (Developmental Checks)
The doctors and health visitors work together to carry out the recommended developmental checks on children. Please feel free to approach any of the doctors or health visitors if you have concerns about your child.
All the doctors and sister Helen have specific training and qualifications in family planning and are happy to offer contraceptive and emergency contraception. Whatever your age, we would much rather offer you contraception than have you risking an unwanted pregnancy.
Emergency contraception needs to be started as soon as possible after unprotected sex. We suggest that you telephone the surgery at 08:00 the following morning to arrange to be seen the same day. It will help the receptionist to arrange an appropriate appointment if you can tell her it is for emergency contraception.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit an review of your contraception, please complete our online contraception review form.
This is a surprisingly common problem and will affect about 10% of men at some time in their lives. Those with diabetes are at particular risk. There are several simple treatments that can help.
Please see Dr Bruynseels if you want to discuss this problem.
Pre conceptual advice is available at the surgery. If you are thinking of trying for a baby, we would encourage you to start taking Spina Bifida).
We would also encourage smokers to try to stop smoking before becoming pregnant.
We know that teenagers, particularly the under 16’s, worry that we will tell their parents if they come requesting contraception or to discuss any other medical matters. We can assure you that all consultations are confidential. All practice staff are bound by the same rules.
If you are embarking (or considering embarking) on sexual activity and don’t want a pregnancy, please come and see one of us to discuss contraception and safe sex. Equally, if you just want information, we are more than happy to offer it and have some excellent leaflets. Emergency contraception needs to be started as soon as possible after unprotected sex.

The practice nurses are the experts in this area. They are happy to offer general advice to people travelling abroad, together with details about malaria protection and immunisation for particular areas. It may take up to 8 weeks for a full course of immunisations, so please contact us well before you are planning to go abroad.
