Chaperones

You can always have a relative or friend with you when you see the doctor.

There are other times when the doctor will ask you if you would like to have one of our nurses present. The offer is most appropriate if the examination is of a sensitive nature, e.g. a smear, gynaecological examination, breast examination, rectal examination and testicular examination.

The objective is to protect the doctor and the patient, while hopefully lessening any embarrassment.
