UK Chaperone Service Training - The Mandatory Training Group

Why is chaperone training important?

The level of training that non-clinicians have been given in order to provide effective chaperoning is highly variable, ranging frequently from no training at all, to others having formal training programmes.  The MDU, in August 2010 restated the need for chaperones to have had some form of ‘formal training’.  Advice from both the BMA and MDU is not always black and white, and this course provides a clear strategy for practices to adopt. It works best when attended by chaperones, nurses, a GP or two and a manager: the whole practice team potentially!  This course provides clarity for clinicians, chaperones and managers.

‘Chaperoning In Primary Care: a comprehensive approach’ aims to provide a wide-ranging training programme to those who undertake chaperoning, and those asking for a chaperone.

Chaperone training

A formal chaperone implies a clinical health professional, such as a nurse. In a GP practice it can also mean a specifically trained non-clinical staff member, such as a receptionist. This individual has a specific role in the consultation and this should be made clear to both the patient and the person undertaking the chaperone role.

Members of staff who undertake a formal chaperone role must have been trained so that they develop the competencies required. Training should include:

  • What is meant by the term chaperone.
  • What is an 'intimate examination'.
  • Why chaperones need to be present.
  • The rights of the patient.
  • Their role and responsibilities. It is important that chaperones should place themselves inside the screened-off area as opposed to outside of the curtains/screen (as they are then not technically chaperoning).
  • Policy and mechanism for raising concerns.

Clinical staff who undertake a chaperone role will usually already have  a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (see Nigel’s surgery 2). If non-clinical staff act as chaperones, they will normally require a DBS check – whether they do and at what level will depend on their specific duties as a chaperone and the contact they have with patients, particularly children and vulnerable adults.

Induction of new clinical staff should include training on the appropriate conduct of intimate examination. Trainees should be observed and given feedback on their technique and communication skills in this aspect of care.

All staff should have an understanding of the role of the chaperone and the procedures for raising concerns.

Training can be delivered externally or provided in-house by an experienced member of staff so that all formal chaperones understand the competencies required for the role.

Accredited Chaperone Training Courses Online - Chaperone ELearning Courses - Care Quality Commission Guidance for Chaperone Training - The Mandatory Training Group UK -

Care Quality Commission guidance for chaperone training

CQC guidance for chaperone training

We have had questions from both practices and inspectors about the use of chaperones in general practice.

The GMC has published guidance on intimate examinations and chaperones. This sets out the details around circumstances when and why a patient may require a chaperone and considerations that should be given. The GMC guidance is guidance only and not a mandate. If a GP wishes not to follow this guidance they should risk-assess the situation and record their logic or discussion clearly. However, even by doing this rather than following the guidance, they will put themselves at risk.

  • GMC guidance: Intimate examinations and chaperones

Why is a chaperone needed?

Every GP practice should have a chaperone policy in place for the benefit of both patients and staff.

All medical consultations, examinations and investigations are potentially distressing. Patients can find examinations, investigations or photography involving the breasts, genitalia or rectum particularly intrusive (these examinations are collectively referred to as 'intimate examinations'). Also consultations involving dimmed lights, when patients have to undress or if they need to be touched may make them feel vulnerable.

For most patients, respect, explanation, consent and privacy take precedence over the need for a chaperone. The presence of a chaperone does not remove the need for adequate explanation and courtesy and neither can it provide full assurance that the procedure or examination is conducted appropriately.

It is important that children and young people are provided with chaperones. The GMC guidance states that a relative or friend of the patient is not an impartial observer and so would not usually be a suitable chaperone. There may be circumstances when a young person does not wish to have a chaperone. The reasons for this should be made clear and recorded.

All staff must be aware that chaperones are to protect both patients and staff. (The hospital investigation where a consultant was found guilty of abusing children and young people found staff believed that a chaperone was to protect the medical professional. They did not realise a chaperone was there to protect the child as well.)

Online Chaperone Training Courses for Healthcare & Social Care Professionals - The Mandatory Training Group UK -

Offering a chaperone

The chaperone policy should be clearly advertised through patient information leaflets, websites (where available) and on notice boards.

All patients should routinely be offered a chaperone during any consultation or procedure. This does not mean that every consultation needs to be interrupted in order to ask if the patient wants a chaperone to be present. The offer of chaperone should be made clear to the patient before any procedure, ideally at the time of booking the appointment.

For children and young people, their parents, relatives and carers should be made aware of the policy and why this is important.

Where a patient is offered but does not want a chaperone, it is important that the practice has recorded that the offer was made and declined.

If the patient has requested a chaperone and none is available at that time, the patient must be given the opportunity to reschedule their appointment within a reasonable timeframe. If the seriousness of the condition would dictate that a delay is inappropriate, then this should be explained to the patient and recorded in their notes. A decision to continue or otherwise should be reached jointly.
