If you want to have someone with you during your appointment, then you can request a chaperone. This could be a trained member of our staff or a person of your choosing who is over 18 years old.
The clinician will consider whether or not it is appropriate for a relative or friend to act as a chaperone, and may ask for a member of staff to also be present. Please let us know before your appointment if you would like a chaperone to be present.
If either the patient or the clinician wishes a chaperone to be present, or either is uncomfortable with the choice of chaperone, the appointment may be delayed to a later date when a chaperone or alternative chaperone is available.
