If you require a chaperone, please ask at reception.

Chaperone Policy

The Practice has trained chaperones who may be asked to be present when we are examining you.

A chaperone is a member of the practice who is trained to accompany you whilst you are being examined.  They are there to protect you and the doctor from any misunderstanding.

You or the Doctor may ask for a Chaperone

Confidentiality - The chaperone will only be present for the examination itself, and most discussion with you will take place while the chaperone is not present.  Please be assured that all practice staff understand their responsibility not to divulge confidential information and they are bound by our confidentiality policy.

There will be a record of the chaperone being present at the examination. The record will state if there were any problems or not and give details of any concerns or incidents that occured.

 

You can refuse a chaperone, and if you do so this will be recorded in your medical records.
