Chaperone Policy


< Back to policies & procedures

You are very welcome to bring a friend or relative to your consultation. They may help if English is not your first language, if you have difficulty expressing your needs or memory problems.

If you want, you can ask for another professional to be there during any clinical examinations. This is called chaperoning. Your clinician might also ask for a chaperone to be present during intimate examinations.

If we can't provide a chaperone when you ask, we'll schedule your examination for another time.
