Chaperone

Would you like a chaperone? Just ask.

This practice is committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment for all patients at all times.

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present during any consultation, examination or procedure. 

If you feel you would like a chaperone present at your examination please inform your doctor or nurse who will be happy to arrange this for you.

Where a chaperone is not available, the clinician will ask you to make an appointment and request the presence of a chaperone at the time of booking.

If you would like more information our Chaperone Policy is available here.


Masks, Social Distancing and Chaperones

Wearing a face mask is not mandatory in GP practices but patients are strongly advised to wear face coverings when attending for appointments as it is not always possible to maintain a 2 metre distance from other people.

By face coverings we do not mean a surgical or other medical grade mask but a covering of the mouth and nose that is made of cloth or other textiles and through which you can breathe, for example a scarf or religious head covering that covers the mouth and nose.

If you are bringing a chaperone to your appointment they will also be required to wear a mask during your consultation.
