Do you need a chaperone?

There are occasions when patients need to be assessed by a clinician 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.

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