We have a simple policy for your comfort
Why a Chaperone?
You may feel more comfortable bringing a friend or your partner with you to your appointment, this can be helpful especially on your first consultation.
We understand that seeing someone for the first time can be a strange and for some a stressful experience.
We are happy for you to have a companion with you for both your consultation, and treatment, on your first or any subsequent visits if this makes you feel more comfortable.
The presence of a second person also means that any details of your condition, or advice that we give you after your treatment, may be remembered by the second person if you are unable to recall all of the details yourself.
Minors under the age of 16 will be required to have a parent/guardian/carer with them during any treatment, who can consent to the treatment given.
In almost all circumstances you will have to stay with the patient during the consultation if they are under 16 years of age.
