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.
The Factory Young Peoples Centre
We are very fortunate to have The Factory young Peoples Centre on our doorstep. If you live locally you can’t fail to have seen the bright pink building at the bottom of Longbridge Lane. The Factory offers all sorts of support and activities for young people. They can also signpost you to a range of health and well-being services.
