We are 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 (male and female) are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required.Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking an 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 your appointment.
Your GP or Nurse may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our Chaperone Policy. If you refuse a chaperone then the GP or Nurse may ask you to rebook your appointment.
If you would like to see a copy of our full Chaperone Policy or have any questions or comments regarding this please contact the Practice Manager.
