Chaperone Policy

This organization is 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 examination or procedure where they feel one is required. This chaperone will be a trained member of staff.

Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking an appointment so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way. Where this is not possible we will try to provide a chaperone at the time of your request. However, occasionally, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.

Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our chaperone policy. 

If you would like to see a copy of our chaperone policy or have any questions or comments regarding this please contact the manager.
