Safety and Security
Please note that you are responsible for your own belongings whilst on the premises and to check you do not forget anything when you leave.
Please watch your children and take care of their safety. There is a playroom for children under the age of 7 but children should still be supervised at all times. A surgery is not a safe place for children to run around.
Should you notice a potentially dangerous situation please inform the nearest practice staff member
Rude & aggressive behaviour towards the doctors and staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
Such behaviour will include shouting, swearing, & rude & intimidating gestures.
Please be advised that patients who behave in this manner will be asked to leave the premises and de-registered with immediate effect.
Your doctor, practice staff and other health professionals who have access to your medical records are duty bound to use them in the strictest of confidence. From time to time other personnel may require access to your records – for the purpose of training or audit for example.
These people will be bound by the same duty of confidentiality. If you do not want your records to be used for such purposes please write to the practice manager.
