Non-urgent advice: Young People’s Confidentiality Statement

Here to listen. Not to tell.

All the doctors, nurses, receptionists and other staff at this surgery will keep anything you tell them private just as they would for any adult.

We will not discuss any information about you with anyone else, unless you ask us to do so, except in circumstances where you or anyone else’s safety is at risk. We would then keep you fully informed.

If any of our young patients have other suggestions regarding how we can improve the service we provide for them please let us know by completing a patient suggestion form or by speaking to a member of our team.
