Would you like a Chaperone?
When attending the doctor or nurse for some examinations or tests you may prefer to have a chaperone present. Please let our receptionists know if you would like a chaperone. We can give you the following choices.
- We can rearrange your appointment so that you can be seen by a doctor of the same sex.
- You may bring a friend or relative of your choice with you.
- We can arrange for another nurse or doctor to be present during your examination.
- One of the receptionists can be present, behind a screen, in the consulting room.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10.30am if you require a home visit.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
