In certain circumstances during an examination of an intimate nature the doctor may ask a member of staff to be present. This is to protect both the doctor and the patient. If a suitable chaperone is not available an alternative appointment will be offered. A patient may of course request a chaperone be present but this may mean that another appointment will be necessary.
Freedom of Information
Whitby Health Partnership conforms to the Freedom of Information Act 2000. We have produced a publication scheme in accordance with the Act, which is available by writing to the Practice Manager.
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act was passed on 30 November 2000. It gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, with full access granted in January 2005. The Act sets out exemptions to that right and places certain obligations on public authorities.
FOI replaced the Open Government Code of Practice, which has been in operation since 1994.
