Minor Surgery

Selected minor surgical procedures can be performed at the surgery, helping to avoid hospital referrals and out-patient visits.

Chaperone

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present during any consultation, examination or procedure. Clinicians at this practice will advise patients that a chaperone is necessary during any intimate examination; this is to safeguard both the clinician and you, the patient.

Where a chaperone is not available, the clinician will ask you to make an appointment and request the presence of a chaperone at the time of booking.

We only use staff as chaperones when they have had the appropriate training.

Family and friends are not permitted to act as chaperones as they do not have the knowledge required, nor do they have the necessary training.

Should you wish to see the full chaperone policy, please ask to speak to the Practice Manager.

If you have any questions, please speak to the reception staff who will direct you to an appropriate member of the team.
