Our public health nurses can provide you with sexual health advice around being ready for sex, sexual consent, keeping safe and healthy which includes contraception options. We can also give emergency contraception, pregnancy testing, chlamydia screening and sign you up to the condom distribution scheme (C-Scheme) for 13 to 19 year olds.
Our confidentiality statement is: What you tell us today will not be shared with anyone else. Unless you are being hurt or harmed or you are hurting or harming someone else. We will always try to tell you before we share your information.
You can text our public health nurses on 07507 330025. This is a confidential text messaging service for young people, providing advice and support. Available Monday to Friday, 9am – 4.30pm, except bank holidays.
You can also attend a drop-in at your school to see a public health nurse. In most schools you do not need an appointment, you just turn up at the venue and wait to be seen. At other schools you may need to make an appointment. Find out more here.
The legal age to have sex is 16 years old, however we do recognise that people are interested in and/or having sex before they are 16 years old. For more information on sexual consent, check out this video.
