Contraceptive Service

We provide a comprehensive family planning service and can advise you on all methods of contraception. You should make an ordinary appointment for this. All such consultations will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Maternity

The maternity service on the island is run by the midwives. If you think you are pregnant please speak to your doctor in the first instance. The doctor will put you in touch with the antenatal clinic. There is a visiting consultant to support the midwives. The GPs are available to assist the midwives if requested to do so.
