Here to Listen, not to tell
Coming to the doctor can be difficult. We provide a confidential service to all our patients including under 16s. This means that you can tell others about your visit but we won’t. The only reason we may 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 and discuss this with you first.
We are happy to see young people both with and without their parents, when appropriate. There are many misconceptions about whether consultations are confidential and also whether you can talk about various sensitive issues with the GP.
