NHS Highland have launched their new interactive “Live Chat” for young people under 20. This has been created to allow an additional method of access to their Service. Regardless of where in Highland you live, the accessibility is equal. As a Remote and Rural Health Board, they hope that teenagers in Highland will find this a useful tool to improve your sexual and reproductive health. NHS Highland are the first Health Board in Scotland to provide this Service for teenagers.
The “Live Chat” function allows you to have a discreet conversation via online “chat” with their Specialist Nurses and is accessed via their website.
