We know that teenagers, particularly the under 16's, worry that we will tell their parents if they come requesting contraception or to discuss any other medical matters. We can assure you that all consultations are confidential. All practice staff are bound by the same rules.
If you are embarking (or considering embarking) on sexual activity and don’t want a pregnancy, please come and see one of us to discuss contraception and safe sex. Equally, if you just want information, we are more than happy to offer it and have some excellent leaflets.
Emergency contraception needs to be started as soon as possible after unprotected sex. We suggest that you telephone the surgery at 08:00 the following morning to arrange to be seen the same day. It will help the receptionist to arrange an appropriate appointment if you can tell her it is for emergency contraception.
