Chaperone Policy

You are very welcome to be accompanied by a trusted friend or relative at your consultation if you wish, and this is all the more important if English is not your first language, or if you feel you might not be able to express what you need clearly to the Doctor or Nurse.  

In certain situations, for example with intimate examinations, you will be offered the choice of having another member of the team present at the examination. This is called chaperoning. Please see our policy for further information: Chaperone Policy.
