Chaperone Policy

Our Practice is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times.

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure. This chaperone may be a family member or friend. On occasions you might prefer the chaperone to be a trained member of staff.

Whenever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking so that your appointment is not delayed in any way. When this is not possible we will do our best to provide a chaperone at the time of request.

Please Note- There may be occasions when it is necessary to reschedule your appointment. Also, your healthcare professional might require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations.
