Young People

We recognise that sometimes patients under the age of 18 might want to see a doctor or nurse, but without their parents or guardians coming with them. We understand that you might want to talk about personal or sensitive matters that you do not want other people to know about. We respect your right to confidentiality and if you ask for it to be, anything you discuss with the doctor or nurse will remain confidential.

Everyone under 18 is able to book appointments in person at the Practice and over the phone, and if you are 16 or over you can use our online service. You will be offered the chance to have a chaperone, which is someone who will come in to the appointment with you to support you. This can be a friend or family member, or we can arrange for a nurse or staff member to be your chaperone.

During your appointment, the doctor or nurse will listen to what you have to say and then decide whether you need treatment, and what treatment it should be. They will not make any judgements about why you have come to see them, and will support you.

The doctor or nurse might ask you some questions to find out if you understand the problem you have discussed, the choices of treatment available and the consequences of such treatment.
