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 and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance.
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required. The chaperone will be a member of staff but, if preferred, you may also be accompanied by a family member or friend.
Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations, in accordance with our chaperone policy.
If you wish to have a member of the practice staff present during your consultation, please mention this to our reception staff when booking your appointment, or to your doctor at your consultation, and it will be arranged.
Remember, it is your right to have a chaperone and to refuse an examination if one is not available.
