Medical Visits are Always Confidential

Dear Ask The Doctor:  How old do i have to be to go to A and E without an adult
 

Dear Patient:  There is no age minimum to go the emergency room or your doctors office. As long as your doctor feels you are mature enough to make decisions, your parents will not be needed.
Furthermore, medical guidelines protect your privacy in all cases except for a few (if you are suicidal or want to harm someone else) so please be assured that if you visit your local doctor, you can receive advice without the knowledge of your parents.
Please visit a doctor you trust or ask a question on this site. If you browse the site, you may already find the answer you are looking for.
