Noticeboard

It is with regret that we inform you that Dr Razzaq is leaving Bute House Medical Centre and will no longer be offering any appointments to see her.


Please see the following message from Dr Razzaq –


“As many of you are aware, I have been away from Bute House Medical Centre for the past four months as my partners kindly granted me a sabbatical. During this time, I have been working closely with Luton CCG to develop a pathway to better care for our Frail Elderly population. I have realised that this area of work is my passion, and as a consequence, I have decided to step down from GP Partner at Bute House to dedicate more time to service improvement and also to pursue a Masters in "Ageing and Society" at King's College London.


It has been a privilege to have been given the opportunity to look after you for the past 11 years and I will miss being your family doctor. I leave you in the excellent care of my amazing partners, Drs Kothari, Dissanayake, Hill and Satchi and I am sure that Bute House will continue to thrive as a centre of learning as well as the provision of excellent health care.”


Contraception

Which method?

There are so many types of contraception we should be able to find one which suits your needs.

Any of our doctors or nurses would be happy to give you information about contraception. All information is treated confidentially.

We now offer implants and coils in the surgery- please contact us for more information

(we also offer Contraceptive Pills, patches and injections)

 

Please remember that condoms are the only form of contraception which will protect you against Sexually Transmitted Infections.

 

You can get information on all your options from the NHS Choices website

http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Contraception/Pages/Introduction.aspx

The Family Planning Association also has lots of useful information on its website about all the available options.

In particular this link will allow you to download their leaflet about all methods of contraception

http://www.fpa.org.uk/Helpandadvice/Contraception/guidetocontraceptionmethods

and this link will tell you about Sexually Transmitted Infections

http://www.fpa.org.uk/Helpandadvice/SexuallytransmittedinfectionsSTIs

We have lots of leaflets available in the surgery if you would prefer to read a paper copy of this information.

 

 

If for some reason you would prefer not to come to the surgery you can discuss contraception at:

Brook for younger people (under25) 01582 748 580

http://www.brook.org.uk/

Wigmore Lane  (for any age) 01582 511 040

If you are already on the contraceptive pill then you can see a nurse or doctor for a repeat prescription.

If you are on the Depo provera injections then you need to request a prescription for the injection at least a week before it is due and then make an appointment to see the nurse at the time it is due, bringing the injection with you.

The 'Morning after' pill

This pill can be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse to reduce the risk of pregnancy, but becomes less effective the later it is taken. Please make an urgent appointment with a doctor or nurse. A coil can also be inserted within 5 days of unprotected sex. If you need this service you would be referred to another clinic.
