Ammonite Health is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times. The safety of everyone is of paramount importance.
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they require one. The chaperone may be a family member or friend, but on occasions a formal chaperone may be preferred.
If a chaperone is required, patients are advised to ask for a chaperone at the time of booking the appointment; this will enable arrangements to be made, so that the appointment is not unnecessarily delayed.
The healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations.
All trained chaperones understand their role and responsibilities, and are competent to perform that role.
There is no common definition of a chaperone and their role varies considerably depending on, the needs of the patient, the healthcare professional and the examination being carried out.
