Teenage Health

Marple Cottage Surgery has a wealth experience in dealing with all people of all ages, including our teenage patients. We also have access to other services that are available to young people, so if you have a problem that we are not able to deal with, we can put you in touch with someone that may be able to.

Confidentiality is treated in a highly professional manner so remember that anything you discuss with us remains confidential. You do not need to have an adult with you when you come to your appointment. If any matters do need to be discussed with anyone else or you need to be referred for specialist opinion this would be made very clear to you during your consultation.

We would like you to feel that you are welcome at the surgery and trust us to look after your health needs. If you would like some advice but do not want to book an appointment why don’t you email one of the clinicians.
