We offer a confidential service to all of our patients, including those under 16. This means that (apart from exceptional circumstances) anything you tell us, or advice we give you, will not be discussed with anyone else without your permission. The only reason we may have to consider passing on confidential information would be to protect you or someone else from serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.
You can discuss any health problem with any doctor. We are also available to discuss:
Contact reception for an appointment.
Spots, weight, sex, bullying, alcohol, relationships, smoking, drugs, periods, contraception, family, exercise, condoms… and anything else!
Our Doctors and Nurses are trained to help you with different types of contraception. All contraceptives are free.
You do not have to be over 16 to discuss contraception or emergency contraception with a Doctor or Practice Nurse.
Free condoms are available from CHECK OUT at Brookside Clinic & the Healthy Living Centre, Walton Court.
Emergency contraception is sometimes wrongly called the morning-after-pill. This is misleading as it can actually be taken up to 72 hours (3 days) after having unprotected sex. However the sooner it is taken the better! A coil can be inserted up to 5 days after unprotected sex. So, if you didn’t use any contraception, or the condom burst, arrange to see a doctor as soon as possible. Ask the receptionist for an urgent appointment – you do not need to say why!
Think you might be Pregnant?
See a Doctor or Practice Nurse as soon as possible. They will help you to consider your options and offer help and advice whatever you decide to do.
Free emergency contraception is available from this practice. You can also get free emergency contraception from Family Planning Clinics, Sexual health Clinics (GUM) and some Chemists. Look over the page for the nearest places to you.
