Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) for the school holidays. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

Jadelle implant now only $5 for women under 22

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

National News

 We’ve got an early Christmas present for young women thinking about getting a long-acting but reversible contraceptive implant. From 1 December, women who are New Zealand residents and are under 22 years of age will pay just a $5 dispensing fee* for their Jadelle implant.

Previously all clients were charged a $17 dressing fee.  

 “We have listened to the voice of our clients who tell us that the $17 dressing fee is a barrier to having an implant. We have decided to remove this charge for under 22 year olds and Community Service Card holders and absorb the cost ourselves,” our Chief Executive Jackie Edmond says.

“We want women to be able to choose the contraceptive that is best for them – without being worried about cost or being unable to pay. We know this fee was a real issue for some women.”

 There’s good news for Community Service Card holders too, who will pay just $5 for each of their appointments and the $5 dispensing fee.  Women without a Community Services Card will pay $27 for each of their appointments, the $5 dispensing fee and a $10 dressing fee. 

Women interested in the Jadelle contraceptive implant can call their nearest Family Planning Clinic or use the “Ask for an Appointment” form on our website.

If you are not a New Zealand resident, please call Family Planning for more information about the cost of a Jadelle contraceptive implant.
