We provide a confidential service to all young people including under 16’s. This means that you can tell others about your visit but we won’t.
The only reason we might consider passing on confidential information without your permission would be to protect you or someone else from serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.
You can be seen on your own or with a friend for support. We hold Patient Participation meetings and we would welcome any young person who would like to join.
You can make an appointment by telephoing the surgery on 01325 380640 – 8:00am till 5:30pm – Monday to Friday or by calling into the surgery and speaking to reception staff.
We can assist with advice and treatment on: contraception, health eating and management, worries and anxieties, relationships, any other health issues.
Our Family Planning walk-on clinic is on Wednesday afternoons from 3:30pm till 6:00pm every week.
You can ask to see a male or female doctor or see one of our nurses. If you need a GP out of surgery hours you could ring 111, calls to this number are free.
