Acceptable behaviour policy
We are committed to producing a high quality of care to our patients. The relationship between the patients and those working in the surgery is an important issue and is a two-way process. Therefore, in order to protect both the staff and other patients, we have a zero tolerance policy and respectfully point out that the following inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated:
- Threatening or abusive behaviour
- Verbal/physical abuse
Such behaviour has a marked effect on staff and other patients and therefore, where such behaviour is observed, we reserve the right to withdraw from treating the patient and ensuring removal of those involved from the premises. A patient displaying such behaviour may be removed from our list. We do not allow smoking or drinking on the premises and ask that mobile phones are switched off.
