Our sexual health is really important to us. The practice is able to offer a wide
range of contraceptive services for our patients at both Conan Doyle and Portobello.
Contraceptive coil fittings are done at the Portobello branch for patients from either
end of the practice. Do make an appointment if you would like to discuss this either
with the nurse or doctor.
Practice Nurses Gillian Simpson and Susan Halket and Doctor Goldring have happy to
fit and remove implants and Dr Connan is happy to fit contraceptive coils including
the mirena coil and also implants. Please let the receptionist know what you would
like to enable us to make the correct sort of appointment for you. Sometimes it is
really helpful to discuss with a nurse or a doctor first and we are glad to do this
on the telephone.
Sometimes we have problems with sex and if so do mention this to us and we will do
what we can to help. Dr Connan is also happy to see patients with sexual problems
in a 20 minute appointment to try and explore things further.
