Services for Young People

Our doctors and nurses are happy to see young people over 12 alone. It is generally considered best for a parent or guardian to be present but, if you want to be seen alone, you can. Subjects which youngsters frequently discuss with their doctors include spots, weight, sex, bullying, alcohol, relationships, drugs, smoking, periods, contraception – and almost anything else!

Even if you are under 16, doctors still have to keep everything you tell them private just as they would for an adult. The only exception would be if you or someone else was in severe danger and, even then, nothing would be passed on before it was discussed with you.
