We have a service level agreement with Newcastle Hospitals Trust (NuTH) to provide fittings and removals for Intrauterine Contraceptive Devices (sometimes known as the coil) and Nexplanon contraceptive arm implants to GP practices in Newcastle.
This reduces the need for patients to travel to city centre services such as the New Croft Centre.
In 2018 there were:
- IUCD Fittings – 1005
- IUCD Removals – 654
- NEXPLANON Fittings – 1207
- NEXPLANON Removals – 1164
All our member practices use the NGPS sexual health contract.
