All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required. This chaperone may be a family member or friend. On occasions you may prefer a formal chaperone to be present, ie a trained member of our staff.
Whenever possible we ask you make this request at the time of booking the appointment so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way.
Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our Chaperone Policy. If you would like to see our Chaperone Policy or have any questions or comments regarding this please contact the Practice Manager.
