Consent and Chaperone Policy

Patients have a moral and legal right to determine what happens to their own bodies.  Seeking and obtaining valid consent is a fundamental process in healthcare; it is the patient’s agreement for the clinician to provide care. All staff at EPCC adhere to our Consent Policy.

This practice is committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment and strives to achieve good practice at all times. All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present during any consultation, examination or procedure. For further information please see our Chaperone Policy.
