A great many of our North Tyneside GP practices can help you look after your sexual health, plan your family and advise about the best form of contraception for you as an individual. Your practice reception team can tell you more about this.

At TyneHealth we are discussing how we can support local GPs to offer greater flexibility in appointment times and clinic locations for a broad range of sexual health and family planning services as well as increased capacity for smear tests and other services related to reproductive health.

And remember teenagers can usually have an appointment with their GP or practice nurse, without a parent present, and you can bring a friend if it makes you feel more comfortable.  The confidentiality of your notes and conversations is of paramount importance to all our healthcare professionals.
