Chaperones

There is a practice policy to offer all patients a chaperone for intimate examinations, such as breast, rectal, pelvic and genital exams. A chaperone is there for the protection of both the doctor and the patient; to act as a witness to that examination. Your choice to accept or decline a chaperone will be recorded. Our receptionists have been trained as chaperones so if you choose to have a chaperone, they or a nurse may be invited into your consultation. If you would prefer not to have a receptionist take on this role we will honour that, though practicalities may require you to re-book your appointment to enable a nurse to be present.

If you wish to discuss this further please ask your doctor.
