Patients are advised that they may request that a chaperone accompany them to consult with their clinician, particularly where it is expected that an intimate examination or treatment may be necessary.

The Practice is happy to provide chaperones from among its members of staff but would appreciate receiving as much notice as possible of such a request.

Members of staff providing this service are bound by strict rules of confidentiality.

No additional charge will be levied by the Practice for providing a chaperone for surgery consultations.
