Young people

If you need to be seen at The Ferns for an examination we have a unit especially for children and young people. You will be support be a crisis worker and a forensic nurse while you are here. You can ask us any questions you may have about what will happen and if you are worried about your health.

If you are under 16yrs you can contact us for advice on our advice line. We may offer you an appointment but we would ask you bring a parent, carer or support worker with you.

If you are between 16 and 18yrs you can attend on your own but we will need to put in a safeguarding referral to better enable us to support you whilst at The Ferns and once you have left. This will be discussed with you.
