You can have a chaperone for any consultation, examination or procedure if you would like one. It may be be worth thinking about this when booking your appointment. A chaperone can be a friend, family member or a healthcare professional such as a nurse. You do not have to accept a particular person who is offered to you as a chaperone.
If you have asked for a chaperone but there is no-one available, we may have to rearrange your appointment for a more suitable time.
