Chaperone Policy


< Back to policies & procedures

Patients are entitled to ask for a chaperone for any consultation, initimate examination or procedure. Please let the receptionists know at the time of booking, or ask the clinician who you are seeing at the time.



If your first language isn't English, you may sometimes need an interpreter or translator to help you understand what is being discussed. This is particularly important if you are having an assessment or receiving medical advice. The Surgery has a Bengali interpreter on Monday mornings

If you need an interpreter for a  doctor's appointment, you should inform the receptionist well in advance (at least 48hrs) of your appointment so they can arrange this service.
