Young People's Page
We recognise that many young people – especially teenagers- have their own sets of problems and may want to either talk to someone in complete confidence about these or as a minimum want access to information about certain issues.
As an option to seeing a GP, Sara Land also runs Minor Illness clinics on Tuesdays to Fridays which are bookable in advance or on the day.
We detail below some useful website addresses which you may find of interest:
Whilst Sara (and indeed any of our GP’s or nurses) offers a full range of advice about sex and contraception (including Chlamydia screening) if you feel you would rather seek advice elsewhere with regard to these matters there are clinics at Wheatbridge (in Chesterfield), Matlock and Buxton.
We are always seeking feedback on any of our services offered or about access to see a Doctor or Nurse – if at any time you have any suggestions please do not hesitate to contact Nick Derbyshire our Practice Manager either by telephone, email or in person.
School Age Children Immunisations
The Public Health arm of NHS England has decided that it is more effective and efficient for all school age children to receive ALL their immunisations from a single organisation; the provider is Derbyshire Health Community Services from September 2015.
As Practices are no longer involved in this aspect of healthcare all queries about such immunisations (including historical information) should be directed to them on 01283 707170.
Alternatively we can provide a printout of these from the child's records here at a standard cost of £10 (under the Data Protection Act subject access).
We apologise for any inconvenience this causes by this decision.
