All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure if they feel one is required. This chaperone may be a family member, friend or you can request a formal chaperone (practice nurse) to be present. All of our practice nurses have had formal chaperone training.
Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking your appointment so that arrangements can be made in advance to prevent any delays. Where this is not possible, we will endeavour to provide a formal chaperone at the time of request. However, occasionally it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
