Arrange for a Chaperone

chaperone

Would you like someone to accompany you in your consultation?

The General Medical Council (GMC) states that a Chaperone does not have to be Medically Qualified, but will ideally:

  • be sensitive, and respectful of the patients dignity and confidentiality
  • be prepared to reassure the patient if they show signs of distress or discomfort
  • be familiar with the procedures involved in routine intimate examination.

If so, please advise the reception staff and this can be arranged for you.
