 The Downland Practice

Patients Age 16 or over


16 year olds - This is to inform you of the services we provide, in particular the support we give our young adults.


In future we will write to you rather than your parent or guardian. Please can you complete this form and return to the surgery (downlandpractice@nhs.net). The mobile number is especially important if you have one. We send text reminders of appointments and test results to our patients and until you provide us with your number this message may go to your parents phone. You may opt out of receiving any text messages if you wish. Now you are 16 we need your permission to speak to your parent/carer about any of your health issues. You can be assured any consultations with us will remain confidential.


Our Doctors can provide you with confidential advice and support on issues such as contraception (emergency and regular), general health, mental illness, weight issues, acne, sexually transmitted infections, drug, smoking and alcohol problems etc. Chlamydia test kits are available free and discreetly in each of our patient toilets. Anyone under 25 years of age can take a kit away and send a sample off to be tested.


If you are planning on going away to university, you will need to register with a GP practice at the university. If you need to see a doctor during the holidays when you are at home you can register as a temporary resident with us and you will be able to see one of the doctors here.


If you are planning to go travelling, we provide travel vaccinations. Some of these are free, some you will need to pay for. See travel section of this website for details.


You may wish to sign up to book appointments and order repeat medications online. Once registered, you can then download the Patient Access app, which will make it even easier to book appointments. Please go to https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk/Account/Login?ReturnUrl=/ to sign up.
