Our Practice is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times, and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance. All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required. This chaperone may be a family member or friend, on occasions you may prefer a formal chaperone to be present, for example a trained member of staff.
Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking appointment so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way. Where this is not possible we will endeavour to provide formal chaperone at the time of request. However occasionally it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
This is available for both for both language and signing. Please contact reception, allowing a few days to arrange. A male or female can be requested
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
