"Delivering the right care to the right people at the right time"

Teenagers & Young Adults

We welcome teenagers and young adults and encourage you to come to the surgery for any health concern, however minor or embarrassing it may seem.

The doctors and nurses can help you with physical problems, as well as emotional worries, stress or other issues. Examples of common reasons young people come to see us include skin problems, worries about weight and eating, contraceptive advice (including ‘morning after pill’), sexual health concerns, low mood, worrying thoughts and anxiety, drugs and alcohol.

Even if you are under 16 you are welcome to attend the doctor/nurse without your parents. We are happy for you to bring a friend along for moral support.

Remember that anything you say to any member of surgery staff (including receptionists) is totally confidential.

Chlamydia Screening

Free Chlamydia screening for those aged 24 or under is available.

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection, but it often gives you no symptoms at all so you do not know you have got it, unless you do a test.

If you are 24 or under you are welcome to be screened for Chlamydia – Free self test kits are available at reception and in the waiting room toilets.

Over 24 or have symptoms?

Visit your local sexual health clinic: ring 0117 342 6900 or visit https://www.unitysexualhealth.co.uk/ for clinic opening times.

Emergency Contraception

The morning after pill is effective up to 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected intercourse but the earlier it is obtained the more effective it is. A coil can be fitted up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse for emergency protection
