A chaperone is a person who is present during a consultation between a healthcare professional and a patient who acts as a witness for both people during a medical examination or procedure. This safeguards both the patient and the clinician.
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. Alternatively a member of the practice staff can be requested to chaperone during a consultation.
If you feel that you would prefer to have a chaperone present during your consultation, please inform your Doctor or Nurse who will be able to arrange this for you. Alternatively, you can request a chaperone when you book your appointment. Your Doctor or Nurse may also request a chaperone to be present during certain consultations.
