The Public Health Services, for the population of West Sussex, referred to include NHS Health Checks, Smoking Cessation, Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) (Contraceptive Implant and Intra-Uterine Contraceptive Device), Emergency Hormonal Contraception (EHC) and Alcohol Identification and Brief Advice Services.
