We are delighted to share with you two new websites specifically designed for young people across Coventry!
The Children, Young people and Family Services team have launched them to provide useful information about important health issues relevant both for young people and their parents / carers.
www.healthforkids.co.uk offers a fun way for children to learn about health through games, activities and quizzes.
www.healthforteens.co.uk hosts videos and articles to educate teenagers on topics such as contraception, mental health, drugs and alcohol.
NHS school nurse services remain the same with face-to-face clinics as well as the texting service for 11-18 year olds ( send a confidential SMS text and a nurse gets back to you with advice and support ) on 07507331949
Parent line connects parents and carers to school nurses and is open 5pm -8pm Monday to Friday on 01926 626590.
Please spread the word – book in early!
Pregnant women should see our midwife Julia for their first appointment when they are about 8 weeks pregnant.
There has been a big rise in our number of pregnant ladies meaning there can be a wait for midwife appointments so booking in advance (ideally 3 weeks) or as soon as you know you are pregnant is helpful.
Call us or come into the surgery to book.
If you have a positive pregnancy test, you can find out how far along you are by using the NHS pregnancy calculator.
We appreciate that finding out you are pregnant if it was unplanned can be a shock and you may need support and advice. If you need to discuss your pregnancy, please book in with your GP.
