If you are undergoing an intimate examination, your doctor or nurse will ask if you require a chaperone. It’s a chaperone’s job to provide extra security and privacy during intimate examinations or procedures. If you have not been offered a chaperone but you would still like to be accompanied, please ask the doctor or another member of staff and one will be arranged for you.
Our chaperones are available to all of our patients regardless of the gender of the patient or practitioner, and every chaperone is fully trained, holding enhanced DBS checks.
We will always take steps to ensure that the privacy and confidentiality of our patients are maintained.
Please note that we cannot provide chaperones for home visits.
