Chaperones

CHAPERONES

There are occasions when patients need to be assessed or a procedure may be required by a clinician which might involve intimate examinations.

This Practice is committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible, and if you wish a chaperone to be present during your examination please do not hesitate to ask the doctor or nurse.

It may not be possible for such a chaperone to be provided immediately 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 our clinicians and patients and we would, at all times, wish you to feel able to ask for a chaperone, should you require it.
