Family Planning advice

Discuss with your doctor initially. It would be useful for you to have done some research in advance. The Family Planning Association website is a good starting point. Fleet Medical Centre now undertakes family planning training for GPs for coils, nexplanons and offers support of DFFRH.

Prescription problems

Consider whether your query might be better answered by you pharmacist. If not, contact a surgery receptionist who will direct your query appropriately.

 


 

Stressed/anxious/depressed

There are times when we all feel sad, hopeless, fed up or anxious- it's part of normal life.  Sometimes it can be more than that - feelings lasting for months and so intense that carrying on with everyday life can become impossible.  If this is the case you should seek help - ideally with your GP in the first instance, but there are additional sources of advice and support.  The following links are a good starting point:

NHS Choices - Clinical Depression

NHS Choices - Anxiety Disorders in Adults

Depression Alliance

Mind

There are a number of organisations who provide counselling and support locally. Click for a list of Counselling Organisations .

Access to NHS counselling services is generally by referral by your GP as part of an overall management plan. You can however, access the local counselling and life-skills classes directly via the TalkPlus website.

Free Self-help support online can be accessed at www.llttf.com , and there is an excellent selection of free, downloadable self- help booklets at www.ntw.nhs.uk/pic/selfhelp

 


 

Test results

If you have a query that the receptionist cannot answer, make a telephone appointment with the doctor or nurse who arranged the test.
