Sexual health

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 2019 there were:

  • IUCD Fittings – 973
  • IUCD Removals – 530
  • NEXPLANON Fittings – 1083
  • NEXPLANON Removals – 960

26 practices in Newcastle use the NGPS sexual health contract.

The contract is being reviewed in November 2020.
