Children and Young People

CONFIDENTIALITY - WE ARE HERE TO LISTEN NOT TO TELL

We provide a confidential service to all young people including our under 16 year olds.  This means that you can tell others about your visit to the practice but we won't.  You can be seen on your own or with a friend for support.

The only reason why we might have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission would be to protect you or someone else from risk or serious harm, even then we will always try to get your consent first.

You can ask for an appointment with a male or female clinician.
