Noticeboard

CORONAVIRUS: If you are unwell and have recently travelled to an area affected by Coronavirus or met someone who has, DO NOT visit a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital.  Call 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.  Click here for further information... 

MUMPS OUTBREAK: Mumps in the UK are at a 10 year high.  The full MMR vaccine (2 doses) can reduce the severity of this infectious disease if you do contract it.  It is FREE on the NHS. If you have not had the vaccine, call us to book.  Further information: www.nhs.uk/conditions/mumps

Emergency Contraception

If you have had sex without using any form of contraception or you think your method may have failed, you should attend the UEA Medical Centre as soon as possible. 

If we are closed, this service is still available from the Out of Hours Service by phoning 111 (free from landlines and mobiles).  Alternatively, you can visit you local Family Planning Service or Pharmacy. 

Treatment must start as soon as possible - usually up to 72 hours for the emergency pill and up to 5 days for the IUD. 

Remember - THE SOONER THE BETTER - do not leave it until the last minute to seek advice in this situation.  You can see the Treatment Room Nurse (book on day clinic) for emergency contraception.
