YOUNG PEOPLE



Home

Is something bothering you?

Have you got health concerns that are personal or embarrassing?

Are you worried about other people finding out?


The doctors and nurses at your surgery offer private and CONFIDENTIAL* help for young people of any age, including under-16 year olds.  We are happy to discuss any problems that you have, whether you think that they are big or small, and whether they are physical or emotional.


Making an Appointment


It can sometimes be difficult to make a first appointment if you have never done this before.  Here are a few tips:


*The only time we ever share information is if you or someone else is in danger, and we would talk to you first.


Coming to an Appointment


If you haven’t been to see the GP on your own before, here are a few tips:

Getting Involved: our Patient Participation Group

The Practice has a Patient Participation Group (PPG) which meets every couple of months to find out the sorts of things that are important to our patients, so that we can improve the services we provide.  Many of the group members are older – so we need some younger people to let us know what is important to your age group.  See more details on our website.


Here are some links and resources that you may find helpful.  Let us know if there are more that you would like to be added.
