Chaperones

There are occasions when patients need to be assessed by a clinician which might involve intimate examinations.

The Burdwood Surgery are committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible, and if you wish for a chaperone to be present during your examination please do not hesitate to ask the clinician.

It may not be possible for such a chaperone to be provided immediately and you might have to return for the examination to be carried out at a mutually convenient time.

If you wish to discuss a private matter; please let us know and this can be arranged away from the waiting room.

If you would like a chaperone present during your consultation, please advise the Receptionist when booking your appointment or when checking in.
