Teenage Friendly

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

  • We welcome teenagers and aim to put them at ease when they come to the practice
  • We can assure teenages (usually aged 12-16) that confidentiality will be maintained if they ask to keep details of their consultations confidential or if they consult us about potentially sensitive issues
  • They 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 on emergency contraception if required.
