This practice operates a zero-tolerance policy, and the safety of staff is paramount at all times. Staff have a right to care for others without fearing being attacked physically or verbally. We will not tolerate abuse towards our staff under any circumstances.
Abusive patients will be asked to leave the practice and may be removed from the practice list. We will have no hesitation in calling the police if any patient acts in an abusive manner and is deemed to be a threat to staff and/or patients.
A good doctor-patient relationship is fundamental to excellent patient care. The removal of a patient from the practice list is not commonplace and is a measure that is taken as a last resort.
