Young Person Services

Stennack Young Persons Drop-in Clinic

We have a weekly Young Persons Drop-in Clinic every Wednesday from 16:00–18:00 for U25's. Simply arrive between 16:00 and 17:30, give your name at reception and you will be seen in turn.

These are the sorts of things you might like to discuss but anything goes!

  • Contraception

  • Sexual Health

  • Minor Illnesses

  • Stress

Will you tell anyone that I'm here?

No. Every member of staff at the surgery has a duty of confidentiality. That means they won't tell anyone that you have come in or what you came in about. In very exceptional circumstances, if we thought you or someone else was at significant risk of harm, only then would we share information about you, but we would tell you first.

Will I be judged?

No. All doctors and nurses are trained to help all people, whoever they are.
