'Young people friendly' facilities
Health services in schools

Friendly health services tailored to young people are available for you across Wirral. If you’re looking for support with health issues or just need advice, look out for the ‘Young People Friendly’ sign.

You’ll find the sign outside a number of walk-in centres and clinics e.g. health services in schools, Brook, Doctors’ surgeries, hospital departments and pharmacies.

'Young People Friendly' facilities

Services are quality assured so you know that you will:

Be treated with respect

Just because you’re young doesn't mean you deserve less respect. No matter what your age or background you can be assured that you'll be treated the same as everyone else.

Be listened to

It may feel that sometimes your issues fall on deaf ears. The service is here to listen to your concerns and issues and to offer sound advice if and when it's needed.

Not be judged

Health services are not there to judge you, they are there to offer help, advice and support whenever you need it.

You’ll receive a confidential service.

Health services in schools

There is a confidential drop in service for young people aged 13 -19, delivered in partnership with a youth worker and the school nursing service in 28 Wirral Secondary Schools.

Young people can receive information, guidance and support on all ‘core health’ related matters:

  • drugs and alcohol
  • relationships and sexual health
  • emotional health and wellbeing
  • improving confidence, self-esteem and resilience
  • stopping smoking
  • healthy eating and lifestyle   

The youth worker's role within the service is to provide education, prevention and reduce risk taking in each of the main themes.

This will be achieved through a variety of methods including: one to one support, health promotion events, group work, targeted groups and Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education support.
