Helping practices to be their best.

Adolescence represents a time of major development and change in your health. It is important that adolescent patients build a trusted relationship with their health practitioners during this time to maintain healthy living and establish healthy patterns of behaviour.

Adolescent development

During this time, adolescents experience major changes and development physically, sexually, cognitively and emotionally, which can cause a broad range of health issues and experiences. Evidence has shown teenagers feel more confident to navigate these changes if they feel supported by their family. Access to comprehensive and confidential medical advice is an additional area of this support to ensure their safety and well-being.

These changes bring about a range of concerns, including mental health, sexual health, physical health and nutrition.
