A zero tolerance policy towards violent, threatening and abusive behaviour is now in place throughout the National Health Service.
The staff in this practice have the right to do their work in an environment free from such behaviour and everything will be done to protect that right.
At no time will any violent, threatening or abusive behaviour be tolerated in this practice. If you do not respect the rights of our staff we may choose to inform the police and make arrangements for you to be removed from our medical list. CCTV cameras are in use outside and inside the surgery. Telephone calls may be recorded for security and training purposes.
If you are caring for someone with a disability you will be interested to know that the practice runs a Carers Group. If you would like to join it or would like more information about this group please ask at reception.
There are parking facilities on site, though at times there may be difficulty parking there. There is, however, alternative parking in the Buttery car park behind the surgery.
Non-NHS Examinations and Certificates
Medical examinations eg driving or insurance medicals etc, can be arranged by appointment. These, and claim forms for holiday cancellation, medical insurance etc, are not part of your doctor's NHS duties and therefore a fee is payable.
Freedom Of Information Act
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. This is a guide to the 'classes' of information the practice intends to routinely make available and it is available upon request in writing.
