YOUNG ADULTS

We aim to offer services, which are 'teenage-friendly'. In summary, these mean that:

  • we welcome teenagers and aim to put you at your ease when you come to the practice
  • we can assure you that confidentiality will be maintained if you are aged 12-16 and you ask to keep details of your consultations confidential or if you consult us about potentially sensitive issues
  • you are welcome to see a doctor on your own if you wish and you are aged 12-16. We would however advise you to come with an adult where possible.
  • Sexual health advice is available, as is advice on other issues such as depression, drugs, alcohol and self-harm and we can advise you on emergency contraception if you need this.
