I am under 16 - do I have to tell my parents?
No, everything you tell us remains confidential, unless you or someone else is at significant harm. In this case we will let you know if we need to share information.
What will happen when I visit the service?
You will complete a registration form if you are new to the service, wait in the waiting area and then when it is your turn you will be called by a nurse or doctor and taken into a clinic room.
Will you inform my GP if I visit the service?
We do not inform GPs. If there is a requirement to contact a GP this would always be discussed with yourself first and consent gained.
What information will I need to share?
We need to know basic information about you. For example, which GP you are registered with, contact information and a password for your confidentiality.
This will be explained during your visit. You will be asked personal questions about the reasons you’re attending during the consultation.
