Lyme Bay Medical & Dental Practice is committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment for patients and staff, where best practice is being observed at all times and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance.

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, procedure or examination if they feel they need one. The chaperone can be the patient’s own choice. However, on some occasions a formal trained chaperone is required who would be a member of the practice staff.

All chaperones are DBS checked and trained to understand their role and responsibilities and are competent to perform that role.

Whenever it is possible we would ask you to make your request at the time of your booking so that the surgery can make the necessary arrangement. Sometimes it may mean the postponement of your appointment.
