Chaperone Policy


Do you require someone to accompany you? This person will act as a guide or companion whose purpose is to ensure that the examination is carried out in an appropriate way.


Humshaugh and Wark Medical Group 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 safety of everyone is of the highest importance.


All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure if you would like one. The chaperone may be a family member or friend.  On occasions you may prefer a formal chaperone to be present, such as a nurse or other trained member of staff.


Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request when you book your appointment so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way.  Where this is not possible we will try to provide a formal chaperone at the time of request.  However occasionally 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.
