We understand that it can be embarrassing or difficult to see the doctor or nurse alone for many problems. A chaperone can be provided by the practice to:
- Provide support, comfort and reassurance to patients
- Assist in the examination of patients
- Act as an interpreter
- Provide protection to healthcare professionals
If you feel you would like a chaperone present at your consultation with a doctor or nurse, please inform reception who will be more than happy to organise this.
