Consultation Ethics

During consultations we aim to ensure the following; that

  1. Your privacy, dignity and confidentiality are respected at all times.
  2. You can discuss health related matters with a professional of the same sex wherever possible.
  3. You are offered a chaperone if undergoing an intimate examination.
  4. You will be offered an explanation of your problem, and treatment planning will be discussed with you.
  5. We will take appropriate action to organise a second opinion if your symptoms warrant a specialist referral.
