Would you like a Chaperone?
A chaperone is a third person present in the GP, nurse or HCA consultation. They can be requested by either the clinician or patient. Anyone can request a chaperone and for any reason (they can be requested by either the clinician or patient). For more information please speak to reception.
If you feel you would like a chaperone to be present with you at your consultation, please inform the receptionist at the time of booking, so that arrangements can be made in advance to avoid your appointment being delayed.
If you cannot decide at the time of booking, you can still request one on the day of your appointment, but be aware this may delay your consultation.
All of our reception staff have had formal AMSPAR approved chaperone training and are competent to perform that role.
