Children aged 13 who consult a doctor for advice about contraception, abortion or sexually transmitted diseases are entitled to be treated without the knowledge of their parents, the General Medical Council (GMC) will say today.This is scary. As a parent I have the right to know what any doctor tells my child and not have them keep something of this nature from me.
