Chaperoning

For intimate examinations the doctor or patient may prefer that a chaperone is present. All our staff are trained for chaperoning and if you wish to have a chaperone during your consultation with the doctor or nurse please ask at the reception prior to your appointment. Should a chaperone not be available an alternative appointment will be offered.
