Zero Tolerance
We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similarly respectful way.  We take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behaviour against any of our GP’s, staff or patients.  If a patient is violent or abusive, they will be warned and if they persist we will exercise our right to take action to have them removed from our practice list.  Physical violence will result in immediate removal.

We are a ‘Personal Medical Services’ Practice
This allows the practice flexibility in employing extra doctors and nurses and providing additional service.
