Youth GP Clinic

Northlakes High School is proud to partner with the Youth Health Service of the Central Coast Local Health District and San Remo Neighbourhood Centre to offer a Youth Health Clinic. The Youth Health clinic is located at the San Remo Neighbourhood Centre located across the road from the school called “Links”. The Youth Health Clinic is an exceptional example of health and educational agencies combining to provide outstanding well rounded health care to young adults. This partnership was established in late 2013. 

The Youth Health Clinic operates each Friday of the school term from 9:00am to 12.30pm. Students from age 14 and above have access to the service by appointment as well as drop-in. A registered nurse from the Youth Health Service and private practice doctor (GP) operate this medical service. All consultations conducted in the clinic are bulkbilled and the cost of prescription medication is charged to the Youth Health Service in partnership with local pharmacies.

The Youth Health Clinic provides a stable and supportive environment in which young people can access appropriate health care treatment. The registered nurse and Links youth worker attends to all follow up care between appointments and liaises between services. Young people have access to a variety of allied health services provided by Youth Health CCLHD free of charge (e.g. Psychologists, Social Workers and Aboriginal Health Worker).

Students can formally request an appointment by the NHS  Wellbeing team. The Youth Health Clinic is not open during school holidays.

The Youth Health Clinic can assist young adults from age 12 to 24 with a range of medical conditions including:

  • general health concerns like acne, period pain, sporting injuries, sleeping difficulties etc
  • mental health – stress, anxiety, depression
  • relationship problems
  • drug and alcohol problems
  • sexual health, contraception and pregnancy
  • grief and loss

If a young person is under 14 years then parental consent is required and ideally attend the clinic with them.

GP's respect your privacy; they won't discuss your issues with your parents or anyone else unless you give them permission to do so. There are some occasions where they have to by law, release information but these are extreme circumstances.

We appreciate that some parents/carers may have concerns or questions regarding the services provided and student access to the clinic.  

Please don't hesitate to contact the school on 43900555 for more specific information; or email and attention your email to Wellbeing to book an appointment for your child. For further details about the medical service can be found at
