Ages 12-16

Whether you are a young person, or the parent/guardian/carer of a young person, the 0-19 team are here to offer you advice, support and information to help you and your family be as healthy as possible. We offer all young people the following:
  • A “drop in” session at your secondary school - This is run by a school nurse where a young person can get confidential advice about any physical, sexual, or mental health concerns
  • Nurses support health education and promotion in schools
  • Young people attending the Youth Offending Team will be offered a universal assessment
All immunisations in this age range are offered by Vaccination UK.
  • In year 8 all girls are offered the HPV (cervical cancer) vaccine
  • Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio and Men ACWY are now given in year 9

  • Health needs/medical problems
  • If you feel depressed, stressed or anxious
  • Having problems with relationships
  • Want contraceptive advice, including emergency contraception
  • Are concerned about your sexual health
