Chaperone Policy

We are committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment, where the safety of staff and patients is of paramount importance.

When experiencing consultations, examinations and investigations, patients need to be safe and experience as little discomfort and distress as possible. You can ask your doctor or a receptionist for a chaperone if you would like one to be present at any part of a consultation or examination.

When you make your appointment you can also ask to see a female or male doctor or nurse if you would prefer. We will do our best to arrange this for you.
