We offer a full range of in-house contraceptive services including fitting of intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUCDs) and implants as well as depo injections. If you would like to discuss contraception, please book an appointment with one of our clincians who will be able to discuss this with you.

One of our surgeries at Royal Primary Care, The Grange Family Health Centre, has recently signed up to be a registered C-scheme provider. This is a condom distribution scheme which allows our patients to access free condoms. Condoms are the only type of contraception that can both prevent pregnancy and protect against sexually transmitted infections.
We currently have 2 schemes running out of The Grange, the C-scheme and C-wallet.
If you’re aged between 13 and 24 you can sign up for the C-Scheme. The scheme gives you a safe space to access a choice of free condoms and lube. You can access the service however you identify and whatever your sexual orientation. It doesn't matter whether you’re having sex, thinking about having sex or if you’re just curious. All patients will need to register, then patients aged 16-24 will be able to access condoms (up to 20 per month) from the Grange reception using their registration card. Patients aged 13-15 will also need a face to face appointment with our trained member of staff.
C-Wallets are small packets of free condoms and lube and are available for people aged 16+ to pick up from the surgery without needing to register.
If you are interested or wish to find out more please call in to the reception at The Grange to pick up a registration form or C-wallet. If the scheme is a success we will look to extend it to our other sites.
