Young People

 


We aim to offer a service that is friendly and useful to people of all ages. We appreciate that often younger people can feel intimidated or uncomfortable when it comes to talking about health to a doctor or nurse and we are looking to make this easier.

 


   


 


We thought it would be worth taking a bit of time to tell you what we have on offer. If after reading and using our service you feel there are changes and improvements we can make we would also very much like to hear your suggestions and we promise to listen and hopefully improve. We offer a free confidential advice service for everyone, including under 16s, and are EEFO kitemarked. Confidentiality means that whatever your discuss with the doctor or nurse will not be repeated to anyone unless you give permission to do so. We will not tell your parents, friends or other members of your family if you do not wish us to do so. The only time this may not apply is if you or someone else may be at risk from harm, but we will always try and get your permission first.


We are here to listen not to tell.
