Dr Obonna's Surgery

Southwick Health Centre, The Green, Sunderland, SR5 2LT


There are occasions when patients need to be assessed by a doctor or nurse which might involve intimate examinations

This practice is committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible, and if you wish a chaperone to be present during your examination please do not hesitate to ask the doctor or nurse.

It may not be possible for such a chaperone to be provided immediately and you might have to return for the examination to be carried out at a mutually convenient time.

Trust is important in the relationship between GP, Nurse and Patient, and we would at all times wish you to feel able to ask for a chaperone should you require it.
