PRIMARY CARE SEXUAL HEALTH SEMINAR IS A SUCCESS

The Wolverton Centre hosted a Sexual Health Education Seminar on 6th July 2016 which was well attended by GPs and Practice Nurses and received excellent feedback. The seminar included presentations relating to:- Contraception for the complex patient and four workshops relating to “Managing sexual health problems in primary care” –      1. Genital Dermatology      2. Psychosexual


WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR VIEWS

Think we could do better for our patients?   Ever thought about becoming a “Patient Experience Volunteer” Asking patients, carers and visitors to give feedback is an important way to find out what matters to people and make improvements that really count. Volunteers will receive training to conduct professional research with patients that helps shape the future


DID YOU KNOW WE PROVIDE INJECTABLE CONTRACEPTION

Injectable Contraception (called “Depo-Provera”) is a very reliable and convenient type of contraception. The injection is given every 12 weeks into the buttock.  You might find your periods are irregular to start with, but they often disappear altogether when you have been using the injection for a few months.
