Chaperones

Chaperones

It is our surgery policy  to provide patients with a chaperone during certain examinations and procedures which might involve intimate examinations.

If you would like a chaperone to be present during the consultation, please speak to the attending clinician and a chaperone will be made available to you. 

It may not be possible for such a chaperone to be provided always and you might have to return for the examination to be carried out at a mutually convenient time.

Trust is important in the relationship between GP and patient and we would, at all times wish you to feel able to ask for a chaperone, should you require it.
