Chaperone / Observers at your clinic appointment

Protecting the privacy and dignity of our patients is a key part of NMHS core values. All patients within SCGOPHCG will be offered the presence of a chaperone for examinations that are intimate in nature. Please let us know your preferences, as someone’s understanding and expectations of intimate examinations can vary according to their background and beliefs.

Tertiary hospital - what that means to you

Education is a key mission of Sir Charles Gairdner Osborne Park Health Care Group (SCGOPHCG), as we know continual learning at all levels is key to improving patient care.

You will come across learners in all fields, from students through to senior practitioners and all are bound by rules of ethical behaviour and confidentiality. If you do not wish a learner to be involved you can say no as we recognise you may be unwell or stressed, however most patients learn more about their condition when learners are involved in their care.

If you have any concerns about any interaction, please contact us via email:

Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital is proud to be a smoke-free site. Thank you for not smoking or vaping in any buildings or on our grounds. During your hospital stay you can access free nicotine replacement therapy (PDF) to reduce your cravings and be smoke-free.
