Young people and healthcare

If you are a young person living in Newcastle or living in Gateshead then it would be great to hear from you!

If you have experience of using any health services in Newcastle or  Gateshead, including hospitals, A&E, GP practices, urgent care, sexual health, pharmacies and anywhere else we haven’t mentioned, and have good and bad stories to share we want to hear them.

We have a commitment to make sure all health services meet the needs of all people including you, so if you want to make a difference and help us improve, tell us by clicking the links below!

Do you know, if you are over 13 years old, you have a right to confidentiality, the same as any adult, and can book and attend GP appointments by yourself.  Obviously it’s great to have someone to talk to for support but if you don’t, you can go to your GP or school nurse who can provide great support.
