There are occasions when patients need to be examined by a clinician which might involve intimate examinations.

This Practice is committed to putting patients at ease wherever possible. If you wish a chaperone to be present during an examination please do not hesitate to ask a clinician or one of our receptionists.

It may not be possible for such a person to be provided immediately and you may have to return for the examination to be carried out at a mutually convenient time.

Trust is important in the relationship between clinician and patient and we would at all times, wish you to feel able to ask for a chaperone. It is the policy of this Practice to respect the privacy, dignity, cultural and religious beliefs of our patients.
