Teenage Friendly

We aim to offer services which are ‘teenage-friendly’. In summary, this means that:

  • We welcome teenagers and aim to put them at ease when they come to the practice
  • We can assure teenagers that confidentiality will be maintained if aged 12-16, and they ask to keep details of their consultations confidential or if they consult us about potentially sensitive issues
  • Teenagers are welcome to see a Doctor on their own if they wish and are aged 12-16. We would however advise them 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 teenagers about emergency contraception if required.
