IF YOU WOULD LIKE A CHAPERONE PRESENT DURING YOUR CONSULTATION, PLEASE ADVISE THE RECEPTIONIST WHEN BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT OR WHEN CHECKING IN.
A chaperone is an impartial observer present during an intimate examination of a patient. He or she will usually be a health professional or a member of staff trained and familiar with the procedures involved in the examination of patients. The chaperone will usually be the same sex as the patient.
A chaperone is there for the patient. Their function is to:
- Reassure the patient if they experience distress
- Protect the patient’s dignity and confidentiality at all times
- Offer emotional support at an embarrassing or uncomfortable time
- Facilitate communication, especially if there is a language barrier.
