We offer counselling, fitting and removal of hormonal and non hormonal (copper) coils. This is currently done at Priorslegh Medical Centre in Poynton and Bollington Medical Centre.

Who provides the service:

GPs Dr Fiona Ellison-Smith, Dr Lowri Barber & Physician Associate Kate Mottershead currently provide this service and are supported by our excellent HCAs and nurses.

How to access the service:

If you would like to have a new coil fitted or a current one changed, please fill in the form below and email it back to cmicb-cheshire.middlewood.coilreferrals@nhs.net – you will then be added to the waiting list and contacted in due course for the initial telephone counselling appointment. The face to face fitting appointment will be on a separate day following this.

Coil removals can be done in a normal appointment by a trained healthcare professional, please contact the surgery to arrange this stating you require ‘removal only’. A date for this will then be allocated to you, as with the fitting this will be a telephone consultation initially.
