Your responsibilities

  • Please be polite to the staff at all times (remember they are working under the doctors’ orders). We will not tolerate abuse. If your behaviour is deemed to be unsatisfactory, we may have to remove you from the practice list. We may also decline any requests to carry out non-contractual work.
  • Please attend appointments on time or tell us in plenty of time if you want to cancel.
  • Please remember that an appointment is for one person only. If another member of the family needs to be seen, or if you need to discuss their care, please make another appointment.
  • You should only ask for a home visit if the patient is housebound or too ill to visit the surgery. The doctor will decide if a visit is needed and may offer you advice over the phone.
  • Please only ask for an out-of-hours call (evenings, nights and weekends) if it is really necessary and cannot wait until the surgery re-opens. The out-of-hours service is recharged to the practice.
  • Please do not expect a prescription with every consultation. Doctors will only prescribe antibiotics or other medicines if they will help your medical condition.
