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 trained member of staff.
If you wish to have a chaperone present, please tell the doctor or notify the reception in advance.
Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations.
