We are 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. This chaperone may be a family member or friend.
On occasions you may prefer a formal chaperone to be present i.e. a suitably trained member of staff.
Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking your appointment so that arrangements can be made and that your appointment is not delayed in anyway.
Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our Chaperone Policy.
