Young People’s Corner

As part of our working with other local GP Practices within our Network area, Crofton and Sharlston Medical Practice reviewed how it offered services to our young people registered at the practice and welcomed the opportunity to work with the local Youth Association Group – Growing Yorkshire’s Future

We are pleased to announce following an inspection and assessment we have received an award from the Youth Association Group for becoming a young people friendly practice.

Over the last 12 months or so, we have been working closely with other practices, the CCG (clinical commissioning group) and other services offering support to our young people. This section is to share with you things we have been developing or offering to this group.

To our registered young people – please take a look and if you have any comments or suggestions please we would welcome you contacting the Practice Manager with feedback via telephone 01924 866915 or email [email protected]

The practice received a visit by the Young Inspectors who spoke to staff, management and a GP and then performed an inspection of the building. They also asked us to take part in a local survey asking young people what they thought of our services. The report produced and feedback was very positive and the practice is currently reviewing services offered.

The practice is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a plaque for both location sites, confirming we have met the standards they were looking for.

Young People Services
