Chaperone Policy

Our Practice is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that the 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 consultation, examination or procedure where they consider one if required. The chaperone may be a family member or a friend, but on occasions you may prefer a trained member of staff.

Patients are advised to ask for a chaperone if required at the time of booking an appointment, if possible so that arrangements can be made and the appointments is not delayed in any way.

All staff are aware of and have received appropriate information relating to this policy.
