I am under 16 years old. Will my information still be confidential?


All of our services are totally confidential. You don’t need your parents’ permission and you don’t have to tell them if you don’t want to.  You will not have any information about your attendance in our services passed on to anyone outside of the sexual health services (like your parents, teachers, social workers, etc.) without your knowing about it and agreeing to it.

In exceptional circumstances, where you or someone else is in a dangerous situation and telling someone else about this may prevent you or them from being harmed, a member of staff will be required to pass on information without your permission. However they would still inform you of what they were going to do.
