When the Doctor or Nurse Examines you, you may feel you wish another person to be present during the examination [this is called a chaperone]
For Intimate or Invasive examinations you will be offered the presence of a trained chaperone.
You may Accept or Decline
However, please ask if you would feel more comfortable with a chaperone to be present during any examination.
We will always try to oblige at the time but, occassionaly, an appointment may need re-arranging if no suitably trained staff member is available.
If when at reception you feel you would like to talk to a member of staff in private away from the reception desk please ask and we will arrange for a member of the administration team to take you into a seperate room.
