All patients are entitled to have a chaperone (someone to accompany you) 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 i.e. a practice nurse.
Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking your appointment, so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way. Where this is not possible we will endeavour to provide a formal chaperone at the time of request but occasionally it may be necessary to change your appointment to another time or day.
Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our chaperone policy.
If you have any question please contact the practice manager.
