Be comfortable and get the most out of your health visit!
We want our patients to feel as comfortable as possible during your visit to the Doctor or Nurse. During your consultation, the Doctor or Nurse may ask you for permission to examine you. Therefore, if you would like someone else to be present during your examination (a chaperone) please let the Doctor or Nurse know and they will arrange for another member of the medical or nursing team to be present. That person will be familiar with the type of examination you are having.
Similarly, the Doctor or Nurse may ask for your permission to arrange for a chaperone here they feel it is appropriate to do so.
