Our Practice operates a Zero Tolerance policy of any verbal or physical abuse towards any member of our staff. Patients are asked to be considerate and act reasonably. All incidents will be followed up and you will be sent a formal warning or removed from the practice list if your behaviour has been unreasonable. We will have no hesitation in having you removed from the building by the police should your behaviour warrant it.
We reserve the right to prescribe all medicines according to the best medical evidence currently available. For example, therefore, we do not prescribe antibiotics and cough medicine for flu, common colds and coughs because there is no cure for these. We will regularly review all repeat medications and medical sick notes rather than simply issuing them routinely, even if this has been the policy of the previous GP.
