Teenage Friendly

We aim to offer services which are ‘teenage-friendly’. In summary, this means that:

  • We welcome teenagers and aim to put them at ease when they come to the practice
  • We can assure teenagers that confidentiality will be maintained if aged 12-16, and they ask to keep details of their consultations confidential or if they consult us about potentially sensitive issues
  • Teenagers are welcome to see a Doctor on their own if they wish and are aged 12-16. We would however advise them to come with an adult where possible.

Sexual health advice is available, as is advice on other issues such as depression, drugs, alcohol and self-harm and we can advise teenagers about emergency contraception if required.

Additionally, Aplos Health PCN are proud to announce the relaunch of the Youth Wellbeing Clinic from Thursday 27th January 2022.

This service is available to all patients aged 11 – 19-year-olds, who are registered at Sydenham Green Group Practice, The Vale Medical Centre, Woolstone Medical Centre or Wells Park Practice.

The clinic will run every Thursday from 3:30pm – 6:30pm at Woolstone Medical Centre, Woolstone Road, London, SE23 – 2SG.

It is a GP run dedicated, free and confidential clinic for mental, physical and sexual health.

Please note that this clinic is a pre-book appointment clinic ONLY. If you would like to book an appointment, contact your GP practice to do so.
