Did you know we are a 4YP practice?
Take a look at the 4YP website to see what services we offer: www.4ypbristol.co.uk/your-local-services/doctors/
On your 15th Birthday you will be invited in to see a nurse to talk about a range of health issues but feel free to book an appointment with a nurse anytime to discuss your health and wellbeing.
Remember our confidentiality policy.
CREST UNDER 16 CONFIDENTIALITY STATEMENT
The Crest Practice welcomes under 16 year olds to access healthcare confidentially.
The same confidentiality policy that applies to adults also applied to under 16’s. This includes discussions surrounding contraception and family planning. We will always encourage you to discuss important health care decisions with parents or guardians but we will not disclose the information we discuss with you without your consent in all but the most extreme of situations.
These situations might be where your health, safety and wellbeing is at serious risk of harm and we feel that this will outweigh your right to privacy. This will always be discussed with you if such situation was to arise.
We want you to feel confident and happy to attend our surgery without worry that we will share what you tell us.
Patients born between 01/09/1998-31/08/1999 are eligible for Meningitis ACWY due to an increase in numbers of cases of a highly aggressive strain of Men ACWY. This disease can cause meningitis (inflammation of the brain) and septicaemia (blood poisoning) that can kill in hours and those who recover can be left severely disabled, with young people starting university particularly at risk.
If you have received a letter regarding your injection please contact reception to book an appointment with the nurse. If you do not wish to have the vaccination please return your declined slip back to reception as we need to document this for your medical records.
