Women's health Contraception
Hello, I'm Dr Stephens. I'm one of the GPs here at Amicus Health. I'm making a short video today to talk about some of the contraceptive options that we offer as part of the Amicus contraceptive service.
There's a lot of contraceptive options available and our aim is to find the right one for you. These range from shorter-acting options such as pills, to longer-acting reversible options such as the coils and implants. We can also offer options for those who feel that they have completed their family, as we have a vasectomy service here at Amicus Health. If you think something like the pill might be a good option for you then you can just book for an appointment with any of our GPs. We also offer a designated contraceptive service for the fitting of implants and coils. If you have a coil or an implant that was fitted elsewhere, then we also offer a service for removal or replacement of those. Another contraceptive option that we offer here at Amicus Health is the Depo injection. If you and your GP think this is a good option for you, then this can be given every three months by our nursing team. If you have completed your family and you think a vasectomy might be a good option for you, then we'd encourage you to have a further discussion about this with one of our GPs. In summary, we offer a very wide range of contraceptive options here at Amicus Health and we would really encourage you to book in for a discussion to find out what might be the best option for you.
In this video, Dr Stephens explains the wide range of different options for contraception that are available. Our aim is to find the right option for you.
At Clare House, there are dedicated clinics for the fitting and removal of contraceptive implants and coils. Clare House Surgical also performs vasectomies, which is a form of permanent contraception for men. Cervical and breast cancer screening Breast cancer screening
In this video, Dr Helen Stephens talks about the NHS breast cancer screening programme. The screening involves taking X-ray pictures of your breasts to check for breast cancer or pre-cancerous changes. An early diagnosis means a better chance of successful treatment.

In this video, Dr Helen Stephens talks about the NHS cervical cancer screening programme. This involves taking a small sample of cells from the cervix and testing them for a virus which is the main cause of cervical cancer. The test can be done by one of our practice nurses at your nearest GP surgery.

You can speak to any of our GPs regarding the menopause. However, Drs Helen Stephens and Lucy Craven have a particular interest in this area.
