Young People & Sexual Health

Young People & Sexual Health

We provide a confidential service to ALL our patients, including under 16s.

 

This means that YOU can tell others about visiting the surgery but we won’t.

 

Young people under 16 can make at least one appointment for themselves without their parent’s or carer’s consent. At this first appointment the doctor will need to make sure that the young person can fully understand any advice or treatment plan.

 

We offer a comprehensive sexual health service including contraceptive advice , chlamydia screening & pregnancy testing. 

 

Appointments can be made with a male or female doctor & can be after school.

 

 

There is also a new dedicated health service for young people in Berkshire
