There are occasions when examinations of an intimate nature are needed. This practice is committed to putting our patients at ease and therefore has made a chaperone service available to our patients. Chaperones may not always be available immediately therefore the patient may have to make an appointment for a mutually convenient time.
Patients can also bring a relative or friend to act as their chaperone.
We now also have a Carer Chaperone for patients that may need someone to sit with the person that they care for when they need an appointment for themselves.
