Patients are offered a chaperone for intimate examinations. Our reception and nursing staff are trained to act as chaperones. You should expect to be introduced to the chaperone but they are encouraged not to engage in further discussion unless directly asked. They will remain outside the curtain when undressing/dressing but stand by the head of the patient during any examination.


If you feel you may require a chaperone please approach reception whilst waiting for your appointment.
