Confidentiality

You can be sure that anything you discuss with a member of our team will stay confidential.

Even if you are under 16 nothing will be said to anyone including parents, family members or care workers.

The only reason we might have to consider passing on any confidential information without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.

If you do test positive for a sexually transmitted infection our team will encourage you to inform current and recent ex-partners. This will help to cut down the number of people with sexually transmitted infections and therefore reduce the chances of you getting it again in the future.

If you need help on how to tell your partner please ask to speak to our health advisers. If you cannot face informing them yourself the health adviser can arrange to do this on your behalf. This will be done confidentially and your name will not be mentioned.

Our website has facility for you to email questions or give feedback regarding the website. Emails go directly to the sexual health team and can't be accessed by anyone else.

No sensitive data will be stored by this website. Any data entered onto the website will only be stored for the length of time you are on the website.

If you have any questions regarding confidentiality please contact us either by phone or email.
