Contraceptive Coils and Implants (Known as LARCs - Long Active Reversible Contraception).
The practice, in collaboration with Cardiff and Vale Univeristy Health Board has arrangements in place with another practice in the Locality to undertake insertion of contraceptive coils and implants to patients registered with Meddygfa Lansdowne Surgery.
This service is being provided on our behalf by Woodlands Medical Centre, Greenfarm Road, Ely, Cardiff. CF5 4RG. Telephone (02920) 599144, Fax (02920) 599204.
If you wish to have a contraceptive coil or implant fitted, you can self-refer to Woodlands Medical Centre without the need to see a GP or Nurse here at Meddygfa Lansdowne Surgery. You just need to download the application form below, titled LARC Referral, complete it in full and send it to Woodlands Medical Centre at the address shown at the top of the form. They will then contact you to arrange an appointment. All follow-up and after-care for devices fitted at Woodlands is carried out by them also.
Meddygfa Lansdowne Surgery will continue to offer the contraceptive injection and the contraceptive pill and appointments for these can be made at our Reception.
