The surgery operates a chaperone policy which means you can have someone you know or a member of staff present with you when you are examined by the doctor.
We appreciate for certain examinations that a chaperone may be suggested by the doctor.
If a chaperone is needed a policy is available for you to read. A member of staff will be used as a chaperone if appropriate. The details of the chaperone will be recorded on your medical notes for our joint protection.
