Sexual health and contraception


Providing exceptional medical care for individuals, families and the community

Free contraceptive service

Greenwood Surgery is able to provide a free contraceptive service to ANY patient who is registered with a GP in Essex. This includes contraceptive coils (hormone and non-hormone) and contraceptive implants. As per National guidance, we are able to continue this service within our practice which is ‘Covid Secure’.

For patients not registered with Greenwood Surgery, the following referral form can be provided to your GP surgery and once completed returned to

A fantastic resource I find for patients on sexual health and contraception is:

Dr Mistry can help...

‘I have always had an interest in family planning and sexual health so completed my diploma (DRCOG) whilst at medical school and completed my practical training for coils and implants when qualifying as a GP. I love to perform these practical procedures and a bonus is that it gives me time away from my usual ‘desk job’! It is also very rewarding to be able to provide a service like this locally which can often be more convenient for patients. I carry out clinics ‘as and when’ depending on the demand but on average I do clinics once a month for a whole morning or afternoon.’


“I just wanted to thank you for all your dedicated hard work towards my ill-health, it is greatly appreciated.”

“Thank you for the cure. I am now back to feeling 82 – not 182!”

- Mr G, Patient since 2010
