Chaperones

There are occasions when patients need to be assessed by a doctor which might involve intimate examinations.

This Practice is committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible, and if you wish a chaperone to be present during your examination please do not hesitate to ask the doctor.

It may not be possible for such a chaperone to be provided immediately and you might have to return for the examination to be carried out at a mutually convenient time.

Trust is important in the relationship between GP and patient and we would, at all times,wish you to feel able to ask for a chaperone, should you require it.
