Chaperone policy

If you would like to have someone present during your examination (another member of staff who is chaperone trained), please inform the clinician who you are seeing and we will be only too happy to oblige.

If a chaperone is not immediately on hand to help, this may mean waiting a short while until they become available.

As well as offering chaperones on patient request, the clinician themselves may a require another member of staff to be present for certain intimate examinations.  This is standard procedure, as recommended by the GMC, for the protection of both the patient and the clinician against allegations of misconduct.

 

eConsults are switched off during weekends, but you can still use the service for self help information.
