Chaperones

Blacketts Medical Practice is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance.

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they consider one is required. The chaperone may be a family member or friend, but on occasions a formal chaperone may be preferred for example a Practice Nurse or other member of The Practice Team.

The Healthcare Professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations.
