You are welcome to have a trusted friend or relative accompany you to your appointment if you wish, to offer moral support or if you feel you might not be able to express what you need clearly, to the doctor or nurse, alone.
If English is not your first language, we can also arrange for an interpreter to accompany you at your appointment; please provide as much notice as possible if this is required.
In addition, for intimate examinations, you will be offered the choice of having a trained member of staff present at the examination. Occasionally the clinician may also request this service; this is called chaperoning. It might not always be possible to arrange a staff chaperone at short notice, however if we cannot allocate a chaperone when you or the clinician wish one to be there, we will discuss this with you and can reschedule your examination to another time, if appropriate.
