Teenage Health Help

You can be sure that anything you discuss with any member of staff of this practice – doctor, nurse, and receptionist – will stay confidential. 

This means that even if you are under 16 nothing will be said to anyone - including parents, other family members, care workers, or tutors - without your permission.

The only reason why we might have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from very serious harm.  We would always try to discuss this with you first.
