Teenagers and young people are very welcome to book an appointment to see the doctor or nurse. You can do this by calling reception on 01353 624121 or coming into the practice in person. The receptionist will need to confirm your name and date of birth, to make sure that the appointment is booked for the correct person.
If you need to see a doctor or nurse urgently the same day, you need to phone reception on 01353 624123 and ask to speak to the clinical assessment team. The receptionist will take a phone number so that we can call you back. You may be asked for a brief description of the problem, so that we can get the correct person to call you back. It's OK to just say that it's personal if you need to.
If you prefer to come to the practice without a parent or guardian that is usually not a problem - your privacy is important to us. However, we may encourage you to discuss your problems with a parent or other trusted adult. We can help you to do this if necessary.
This website has some tips and general advice for young people about visiting the doctor.
