There are occasions when male or female patients need to be examined by a doctor which may involve an intimate examination.
This practice is committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible. A GP, or yourself, may wish a chaperone to be present during your examination. If you would like a chaperone please do not hesitate to ask the doctor.
It may not be possible for such a chaperone to be provided immediately; you may have to return for the examination to be carried out at a mutually convenient time.
Trust is important in the relationship between general practitioner and patient; we would, at all times, wish you to feel able to ask for a chaperone should you require it.
