Glan Menai Surgery
Dr Katie Lloyd and Dr Marc Edwards currently fit coils.
The doctor might ask you to see the nurse for swabs to make sure there is no infection before the device is inserted. When your results come back you should speak to Dr Lloyd to arrange a time for the insertion.
We also fit coils for patients who are not registered with us. If you are interested in this service please contact reception. You will be asked to complete a Temporary Resident form. Following this, you will normally be contacted about your appointment. There is no waiting list and appointments are available most times. We can also fit coils for emergency contraception and heavy menstrual bleeding.
If you think you would like to have a Mirena Coil (IUS) or a Copper Coil (IUD) fitted please read the information from the following links:
You may wish to discuss with a doctor whether these devices are appropriate for you. The doctor will then ask you to see the nurse for swabs to make sure there is no infection before the device is inserted. When your results come back you should speak to Dr Edwards to arrange a time for the insertion.
When the device is inserted the doctor needs to be certain you are not pregnant. This means you need to be either on your period, or on good contraception for at least 2 weeks or not having sex for at least 2 weeks and a negative pregnancy test on the day. The device will not be inserted if you have had unprotected sex within the past 2 weeks, please be aware of this.
Dr Katie Lloyd and Dr Jonathan Bertalot fit implants. If you would like to consider an Implant please see the link below for information:
In a similar way to coils, to be inserted the doctor must be reasonably sure you are not pregnant. No tests are required prior to insertion except a pregnancy test in certain circumstances.
We also fit implants for patients who are not registered with us. If you are interested in this service please contact reception. You will be asked to complete a Temporary Resident form. Following this, you will normally be contacted about your appointment. There is no waiting list and appointment are available most times.
Dr Bertalot does a regular Minor Surgery list. We are very lucky to have Dr Bertalot providing this service and it saves many referrals to hospital. Dr Bertalot also works in Ysbyty Gwynedd Dermatology Department every week. Please make an appointment to see Dr Bertalot if you feel this is appropriate for you.
People are travelling further then ever before and at much shorter notice! Please make sure that you seek advice in plenty of time especially if you have an exotic or complex itinerary. 3 months at least is advisable.
Before being given an appointment to see the nurse you will be asked to provide some information about your trip to reception. This should include Destinations (include all places to be visited if your plans are complex), dates of travel, if you can remember having immunisations elsewhere in the past (ie they may not be recorded in your notes) and the type of activities you intend to be doing (e.g. off the beaten track kayaking/trekking or just a city tour). These factors may influence which vaccines we will recommend.
After you fill in the form (collect in reception or download from here) you will be contacted within 3 working days and given an appointment. By this time the nurse will be prepared to advise you having reviewed your plans, this saves times for us and you.
Travel advice is free of charge. Some vaccines are free on the NHS but some are not (see below):
