Gordon Street Medical Centre is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times and the dignity and safety of everyone is of paramount importance.
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required.
If you feel you would like a formal chaperone to be present, i.e. a member of staff we would ask if at all possible we will endeavour to provide a formal chaperone at the time of request. However, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our chaperone policy.
If you would like to see a copy of our chaperone policy or have any questions or comments regarding this please contact the practice manager.
