Chaperone Policy




Patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure.  The Healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations. 

All staff are aware of and received appropriate information in relation to our chaperone policy.  All trained chaperones understand their role and responsibilities and are competent to perform that role. If you feel your would like a chaperone present at your consultation please inform your Doctor or Nurse who will be happy to arrange this for you or you can ask a Receptionist confidentially before you consultation, who will make sure this has been arranged for you.
