Self Zone

 

From 1st June 2024, Nightingale Practice and Lower Clapton General Practice have joined Statham Grove Surgery in the LARC self-referral pilot to improve access to contraceptive services in City and Hackney by allowing patients to self-refer for implant and coil fittings or removal.

Self-referral process and where to access the self-referral forms:

  • Posters will be sent out to practices which have a QR referral code which directs patients to the self-referral forms. We ask practices to display these posters in the waiting rooms, WCs etc.
  • Practices can share the self-referral link with patients (see the information sheet attached below)
  • Paper self-referral forms have been produced for patients who do not have digital access. Practices can make these available at reception. We attach a paper form here for your convenience.

Referrals will be received by the clinicians who will schedule a telephonic appointment with the patient. Patients will be asked to complete a pre-assessment questionnaire and once they meet the criteria, they will be able to book an appointment online or be booked into the next available slot of their choosing.

If you have any queries, please contact Veruska Raposo via email.
