Young People Services

Herschel Medical Centre provides a variety of services to young people. Children and young people are individuals with rights that should be respected. This means we listen to you and take into account what you have to say about things that affect you. It also means respecting your decisions and confidentialy.

The surgery is centrally located in Slough with good access to public transport with an approximate 10- 15 minutes walk from the main bus and train terminals. Local buses serve the surgery with a 5 minute walk. There is also secure bike lock up at the side of our building. We can offer appointments to young people both before and after school/college, etc.

If the surgery is closed and you need help please contact the following number: NHS 111.
