Teenagers & Confidentiality

Some parents have queried why they cannot be given test results for younger teenagers. This is because we follow the guidance in the General Medical Council (GMC) document ‘0-18 Years: Guidance for all Doctors’. This states that in Scotland anyone over the age of 12 years is presumed to have the capacity to make decisions about who can access their medical records.

If the young person would like a parent to be given the results, then this is simply arranged by completing a consent form which we can include in their notes.

Access to records - consent for nominated person
