The Practice takes it very seriously if a member of staff or one of the doctors or nursing team is treated in an abusive or violent way. The Practice supports the government’s ‘Zero Tolerance’ campaign for Health Service Staff. This states that GPs and their staff have a right to care for others without fear of being attacked or abused.

To successfully provide these services a mutual respect between all the staff and patients must be in place. All our staff aim to be polite, helpful, and sensitive to all patients’ individual needs and circumstances. They would respectfully remind patients that very often staff could be confronted with a multitude of varying and sometimes difficult tasks and situations, all at the same time.

The staff understand that ill patients do not always act in a reasonable manner and will take this into consideration when trying to deal with a misunderstanding or complaint. However, aggressive behaviour, be it violent or abusive, will not be tolerated and may result in you being removed from the Practice list.

We have the right to refuse treatment and take further action against anyone who threatens the safety of our staff and our patients.

We politely request that patients do NOT approach staff outside of work to discuss matters relating to their health, medical records, or appointments etc
