 Abortion information for young people.

This short film explains what happens when you chose to have an abortion in NHS Forth Valley. The factsheet provides specific local information and a bit more detail that we couldn't fit in the film.

Confidentiality

We understand that confidentiality is very important to young people, and young people are anxious about seeking sexual health advice, as they fear what they discuss with the health professional, wont keep the information confidential.

Young people are owed the same confidentiality to that of an older person, this means that the health professional has a duty not to disclose anything learned from a person, without their consent.

When you talk to staff here, you have a right to expect anything you say will not be spoken about or passed on to anyone outside the team without your permission, irrespective of age.

Under 16s are entitled to special protection from harm, and professional must remember this when helping young people they refer to this as ‘child protection’. If they feel you might need extra support or protection to keep you safe, staff will always try to tell you first that they need to share what you’re told them with someone else.

In exceptional circumstances staff might decide they need to pass on information about you to someone else.

Even so they would not normally pass on any information without first discussing it with you.

Visiting the clinic for the first time - this short film shows what you may expect on your first visit to the clinic.
