Practice Policies

Teaching Practice

The practice has for many years been involved in the education of medical students. At periods throughout the year students will visit the practice as part of their curriculum. Patients will be informed that a student is present and their permission obtained beforehand.

Zero Tolerance

This practice considers aggressive behavior to be any personal, abusive or threatening comments, bad language, physical contact and aggressive gestures. We operate a "zero tolerance policy" with respect to the protection of all staff. This means that no abuse of doctors or staff is acceptable whether verbal or physical and any patient will be removed from the patient register with immediate effect.

Confidentiality

Your medical records are held in the strictest confidence. The practice is computerised and registered under the Data Protection Act. It is practice and legal requirement that all staff maintain confidentiality of patient's records.

Comments

Any constructive comments on our practice are more than welcome. In that context, please feel free to contact any of the principals or our practice manager.
