Chaperone Policy

The Practice has a Chaperone policy which is designed to protect both patients and staff from abuse or allegations of abuse and to assist patients to make an informed choice about their examinations and consultations.

It may be the case that your clinical issue requires an intimate or personal examination and clinicians (male and female) will consider whether this is justified, or whether the nature of the consultation poses a risk of misunderstanding. 

The clinician will give the patient a clear explanation of what the examination will involve and if he/she would like a chaperone to be present then this will be arranged.

As a patient you can always request to have a chaperone present if you wish.
