Any young person can make an appointment to see a GP by themselves and it will be kept confidential (unless we are worried that you or someone else will come to harm in which case we would need to think about who else to involve). You can also come with a parent and we might ask you if you'd like to talk to a doctor or nurse alone if that would be easier. More information on this click here.
Are you looking for advice on:
We provide emergency contraception on the day as well as sexual health advice and free condoms for the under 25's. You can say if it's urgent but you don't have to say what it's about and we will fit you in that day. Free condoms are provided at GRMC under the C-Card scheme and once we have helped you register for this scheme you can use the many condom pick-up points throughout Bristol. Click here for the list or visit www.unitysexualhealth.co.uk/for-the-under-20s/condoms. Have a look at the main menu under "contraception" for other information.
