Contraception is provided for Enfield residents only. Currently we can only provide contraception if one of the following conditions is met:
You are 18 years old or younger and will be seen as part of our 4YP drop-in service on Mondays or Wednesdays. See 4YP section for more details. (Young people’s service)
You are not currently registered with an Enfield GP practice (a family doctor)
You are a vulnerable adult with social worker involvement
You are referred back to us by your GP for specialist contraceptive treatment
We work closely with Enfield GPs (family doctors) to help them to deliver LARC contraception (coils and implants). We have already trained many GPs in LARC and will continue to do so. GPs are already able to provide all other forms of contraception (pills, patches and injections).
The Enfield clinics will offer LARC procedures to those whose GP is not currently able to deliver the service, following referral from their GP.
Oral contraception will only be offered to those not registered with a GP or as emergency provision for those unable to obtain an appointment with their GP on time.
The proposed changes are designed to maximise a fair and widespread approach to sexual and reproductive health care throughout the borough.
If you would like to discuss this further with us, we will be happy to explain the new model of care in more detail – write to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘contraception’ in the subject line.
