Chaperone Notice

Chaperone Notice

All patients are entitled to have someone else with them during any consultation, examination, or procedure. This person is called a chaperone. A chaperone can be someone you know (who is over 18 years old) or one of our staff.

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

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 us on 020 7228 6654 or email waccg.micas@nhs.net
