Contraception advice

Our doctors can advise on and provide the full range of contraception. From helping you to find the right pill to providing information and providing you with the implant, coil or morning after pill, we can help you to find the right contraception to suit you.

Pre-natal Health Checks

We want you to enjoy your pregnancy and be able to discuss any concerns with a doctor as and when you have them. At your consultation, we will listen to your baby’s heartbeat, check your blood pressure and your glucose levels, making sure we make time to check that you are happy with your health during this important time. This can be done in out clinics in Hampshire or Sussex.

Post-natal care

We will ensure that your body is recovering as it should be from birth, discussing any issues around the birth itself, or any other issues around your post-natal care and offering further support if needed.

Post-natal Depression Assessments

We can conduct a post-natal depression assessment to ensure that you receive any additional support you may need. It is common to feel emotional post-birth however, if you are unsure as to how you are adjusting, we recommend this doctor led consultation to discuss your concerns.

Sexual Health

We can conduct tests for a wide range of sexually transmitted infections. This would include Chlamydia which is very common, often symptomless and unless treated can cause fertility problems.

Whatever your concerns we can help -  just give us a call on 033 022 02000 or 01243 766447 or use our online booking system.

Making time for your health

At Southdowns we believe that giving our patients time to discuss their health is a critical factor in good health.

Our consultations are unhurried, allowing us to fully explore your concerns and talk through any issues you want to discuss.

Patient Confidentiality

We do not share any information about our clients with anyone else, unless you give expressed permission. Unlike the NHS we operate an “opt-in” policy regarding data sharing, meaning that unless told otherwise we will not share your details with any third parties.
