Chaperone Policy

 

Who can act as a Chaperone.?

Where possible, it is strongly recommended that chaperones should be clinical staff , familiar with procedural aspects of personal examination.Where suitable clinical staff members are not available the examination should be deferred.

 

Where the practice determine that non-clinical staff will act in this capacity the patient must agree to the presence of a non clinician in the examination, and be at ease with this. They will have received instruction on where to stand.

The chaperone should only be present for the examination itself .Discussion with the patient should take place once  the chaperone has left the room.
