It is the policy of this practice to respect the privacy and dignity of our patients. If you would like a chaperone to be present during a physical examination by a doctor or other health professional you may be consulting at the surgery or if you would prefer to be examined by a doctor or health professional of the same sex as yourself, please let us know and we will do our best to comply with your wishes.
Videotaping of consultations
On occasions there will be videotaping of patient’s consultations. Recordings will not be undertaken without the patient’s consent and intimate physical examinations will not be recorded. The camera will be switched off on request.
On occasions, medical students are attached to the surgery as part of their training. On arrival, you will be advised of the situation by reception and you will be given the opportunity to accept or refuse their presence during your consultation. We thank you for your co-operation during these times.
