CV Health is committed to providing an environment where you feel safe and comfortable at all times. Some health care procedures can make patients feel vulnerable, hence a chaperone may assist in supporting and reassuring the patient during an examination/procedure.
You can expect to be offered a chaperone for any intimate procedure.
Patients are welcome to have a family member/friend present but they can not take the place of a formal chaperones.
Please refer to CV Health's Chaperone Leaflet for more details.
