All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they consider one is required. The chaperone may be a family member or friend, but on occasions a formal chaperone may be preferred.

Patients are encouraged to ask for a chaperone at the time of booking the appointment if possible. However, patients can still request a chaperone at the time of the appointment. The healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations.
