Information for Young People
As part of Wiltshire's plan to support children and young people's mental health, we are making better use of digital services including the launch of a new website focussing on mental health. This website will provide key links to local and national helping services, as well as a growing range of short articles on related issues.

Confidentiality and consent is very important to us all at the surgery.
The principles of confidentiality apply equally to all patients regardless of age. Young people (including those under 16) are entitled to equal confidentiality male or female as all other patients.
Most of our staff are trained ‘Chaperones’ if you would like a chaperone present at your consultation please let us know. We can arrange an appointment for you with a suitable trained chaperone.
At the Surgery we have 3 trained ‘Stop Smoking Advisors’ who offer smoking cessation support and advice. If you would like to stop smoking please contact the surgery to book an appointment.
Feedback from young people is very important to the surgery, we are constantly reviewing our services supporting the young people within our community. If you have any comments or suggestions please let us know.
