The doctors and nurses at the surgery are aware of the difficulties faced by both their patients and themselves when carrying out intimate examinations unsupervised in the consulting room.
You may wish to bring a family member or a friend, but on occasions a formal chaperone may be preferred.
Please do not be afraid to request a chaperone to be present at the time of booking your appointment.
The healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations.
If you would like to see a copy of our chaperone policy, or have any questions, please contact the duty manager.
