Violent and Abusive Behaviour

In the interests of both staff and patients the practice has a zero tolerance towards any patient who is threatening, violent or abusive whilst at the surgery or when a health professional makes a home visit. 

Such patients may be reported to the police and or removed from the practice’s list.  Patients removed from the list will be notified in writing of the reasons for removal and the action they need to take to register at another practice.
