Should you wish to have a chaperone present during any intimate examination, please tell the doctor or nurse and this will be arranged. A chaperone will be an appropriate clinical member of staff. Occasionally there may be no-one available to be a chaperone. In this case you may be asked to re-schedule your appointment.
