Chaperones

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they consider one is required. The chaperone may be a family member or friend, but on occasions a formal chaperone may be preferred.

Patients can help us by telling us they would like a chaperone present at the time of booking the appointment, this avoids delays, but we are happy to provide a chaperone without prior notice. The Healthcare Professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations.
