Chaperone Policy

Cruddas Park and Hillsview surgeries are 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 paramount importance.

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present at any consultation, examination or procedure.  The chaperone may be a family member or friend or if you prefer a formal chaperone to be present you can request a trained member of our staff.

Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking your appointment so that your appointment is not delayed in any way.

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 our chaperone policy or have any questions or comments regarding this please contact the surgery.
