Practices in all localities have access to funding that will increase access to long acting contraception. This includes consultations, administration of Depo Provera, and the insertion/removal of contraceptive implants and copper IUDs.
This funding is available for women aged 15 to 44 years who are at risk of an unplanned pregnancy. This includes, but is not limited to, women living in quintile 5 areas and community services card holders.
Women who qualify for services under a free 'under 25s contraceptive and sexual health' agreement are included under this service, but consultations cannot be claimed under both. For any queries or further information, please contact Sally Newell, clinical services manager.
