Coil and Implant Appointments
If you are interested in having an implant or coil fitted, please do not hesitate to contact the surgery in order to discuss your options and receive advice. Our process for receiving an appointment for an implant or coil fitting or removal is as follows: -
Either speak to Reception or one of our Healthcare Professionals to let them know you are interested in having a coil/implant fitted or removed so that your name can be added on to our waiting list.
Our Practice Nurse will contact you to discuss your options, give relevant advice, explain the coil/implant procedure and answer any questions you have.
Once you are happy and wish to proceed, the Nurse will book an appointment for you to attend for your procedure. Please be aware that appointments for coil/implant services are currently limited to a Thursday morning from 10am due to GP availability (this of course is subject to change).
