The Teen Health Check is a communication tool for you to use (available as an EMIS template) to improve young people's experience of primary care consultations. It's not a tool for exploring issues raised in the consultation. It has been designed specifically by a GP for effective 'fact-finding' within your 10 minute consultation time-frame. It will help you work out quickly what additional referrals and appointments need to be made for that young person.
It has been designed by a GP expert in adolescent health, Dr Stephanie Lamb, in close consultation with the many young people who have been helped by her and the team's service at The Well Centre.
