A chaperone is ‘an independent person, appropriately trained, whose role is to observe independently the examination/procedure undertaken by the doctor or health professional to assist the appropriate doctor-patient relationship‘.
We understand that you may wish for a chaperone to be present during your consultation/clinical examination. Please ask one of our receptionists prior to your appointment.
The clinicians also have the right, in some circumstances, to insist on a chaperone being present.
