Can A Friend Come With Me To The Well Centre?
Yes; if you’d like to bring a friend (or friends) down to the Well Centre to support you that’s fine - it’s completely up to you. If you’d like them to accompany you when you see the doctor, nurse or youth-worker again that’s fine - you’re in control and can decide how you feel most comfortable.
Can I Choose To See A Female Doctor?
Yes. The drop-in sessions on a Monday and Wednesday are run by a female doctor. Dr Steph is here on a Monday between 3.30pm and 6.30pm and Dr Natalia on a Wednesday between 3.30pm and 6.30pm. You can read more about our staff team here.
