All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure if you would like one.
Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request when you book your appointment so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way. Where this is not possible we will try to provide a formal chaperone at the time of request.
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 a copy of our chaperone policy or have any questions or comments regarding this please contact the Practice Manager.
