Family Planning and Contraception
We offer a full range of contraception services through the GPs and nursing team. This includes advice on contraceptive pills, injections, implants (Nexplanon), coils and barrier methods. We can also give advice and guidance on male and female sterilisation. Injections are given by our practice nurses. Implants and coils can be fitted at the practice.
We also offer coil removals and removal of implants.
Smear testing is offered in the practice by our nursing team, although GPs are also able to perform them if you wish. An appointment will automatically be sent to you by the Health Authority for your routine smear although they can be done at any time if clinically indicated.
Ante-natal care at The Rycote Practice is led by our midwife, Wendy Newby. The Thame midwives can be contacted on 01491 826037 or by leaving a message with reception staff.

After birth, the midwifery team will visit you once you are at home with your baby. They will provide support and assistance for up to 28 days after delivery. The health visitor team are available after this to provide advice, support and help for your baby and for you.
All new mums are encouraged to see their GP at 6 weeks for a check-up. You will automatically be sent an appointment.
