Young Persons Information

 We would like to improve our services to Young People.  It is really important that you feel comfortable visiting our surgery so we would love to hear your views on how we can improve.

Do you feel there are services we could offer ?

What changes would make your visit to the doctor or nurse easier?

If you are worried about seeing a doctor or nurse ring and speak to a nurse first, just talking it through first might help. We can always arrange your appointment to suit you best and even ensure that you don't have to sit in the waiting room. See our 'How to Find Us' page on the right hand side for directions.

WE ARE HERE FOR YOU


SAVVY CORNWALL

If you need help and advice about health, wellbeing or everyday life (trust me, sometimes we all do) get savvy! 

Savvy Kernow keeps you in the know about Young Person Friendly Services in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Savvy Kernow has evolved from EEFO - it's so much more than just a name change!

They've changed the way they work with services in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to make sure our young person friendly standards are being met. 

They've listened to young people about what information they need and how they want to receive it.

For more information go to their website: www.savvykernow.org.uk

ARE YOU FEELING ANGRY

It’s normal and healthy to get angry when there is a good reason, and sometimes we just feel angry but we don’t really know why. It is important to do something with our angry
feelings and not bottle them up. But losing our temper may make things worse.
If you are a young person and your anger is making things difficult for you, then this booklet might help.

Feeling Angry
