Chaperones

The practice is committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment for all patients.

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present during any consultation, examination or procedure.

Clinicians may advise patients that a chaperone is necessary during any intimate examination; this is to safeguard both the clinician and you, the patient.

Staff members have received appropriate training to act as chaperones.

Family and friends are not permitted to act as chaperones as they do not have the knowledge required or have the necessary training.

 

If you have any questions or wish to see the full chaperone policy, a copy of the policy is available here: Cedar Practice - Chaperone Policy
