Chaperones

The doctors and nurses frequently need to perform intimate examinations, they may also need to get very close to you to examine your eyes.  They will explain the examination to you and why it is necessary. It is common to feel uncomfortable and embarrassed during these examinations however, if you are uncertain or if you would prefer not to have a particular examination, please say so and we will try to offer an alternative.

A chaperone is a witness to a medical examination and they may take on several roles. They can be a moral support to you but also provide a witness to the appropriateness of the examination for both parties.

Our nursing and reception staff are available to chaperone should you, or the doctor/nurse prefer.  You may also prefer a friend or relative to chaperone for example if a male practioner is examining a female patient or if you are an unaccompanied under 16 year old. There may be occasions when we are short staffed and unable to offer a chaperone there and then, in this instance the appointment can be re-arranged.

If at any stage you are uncomfortable during this type of examination, or wish to stop the examination please tell the examiner immediately.
