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.

 

If you are seeing this message it means the practice is currently closed. During this time our phone lines and eConsults are switched off.

Our opening hours are 8am-6.30pm Monday to Friday, but we also close on bank holidays and on the last Wednesday afternoon of every month for training. You can still browse the site for general information, but if you need help now, click below for options.
