During the Covid19 Pandemic our GP's are warning against the use of Ibuprofen or Nurofen for pain or fever as patients on these have had a worse outcome in Italy as per a Lancet Research article. Our advice is to use Paracetamol only to control any fever or pain. Please also note Codeine also supresses breathing. All our patients have access to telephone advice during office hours, please ring if you need advice.

Chaperone 

During your care, a clinician may need to examine you. Occasionally this may involve an examination of intimate areas. We understand that this can be stressful and you may feel more comfortable with a chaperone. You may book a chaperone when making an appointment that may involve an examination of intimate areas.  

 

If this sort of examination is necessary the Clinician will explain:

  • why the examination is necessary and give you the opportunity to ask questions  

  • what the examination will involve  

  • ask your permission before carrying out the examination  

  • offer to have a chaperone present during the examination 



At all times the Clinician will respect your privacy during the examination and while dressing and undressing 

 

What is a chaperone?    

A chaperone is a person (can be a nurse or a trained non-clinical staff member) whose role is to act as a witness as a safeguard for both parties during a medical examination or procedure.  

If you have any questions or concerns about intimate examinations or chaperoning, please do not hesitate to ask one of the doctors or nurses.
