Chaperone Policy

The practice will always respect your privacy, dignity and your religious and cultural beliefs particularly when intimate examinations are indicated – these will only be carried out with your express agreement and you will be offered a chaperone to attend the examination if you so wish.

All patients are entitled to be accompanied by a friend or family member.

You may also request a chaperone when making the appointment or on arrival at the surgery (please let the receptionist know) or at any time during the consultation.

The practice is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times.

If you would like to see a full version of the practice’s Chaperone Policy, or have any questions or comments, please ask to speak to the Practice Manager.
