A chaperone is a trained member of staff who can accompany a patient as an impartial observer into their consultation. 

They can provide emotional comfort and reassurance and can provide e support if an examination is required. 

You may want to request a chaperone to accompany you if: 

  • you are concerned about your consultation
  • you would like a third-party observer
  • your GP has suggested a chaperone accompany you.

If you would like a chaperone, please ask at reception when you check-in for your appointment.
