Face Coverings

If after a telephone consultation you are advised by the GP or nurse to attend the surgery please bring your own face covering with you. Face protection worn by patients need not meet the same surgical "types" required of healthcare staff and provided they cover the mouth and nose, any face covering can be used including scarves, bandannas or homemade fabric masks.

If you have any concern regarding the service you have received, you should make us aware of the specifics of your concern.  In most instances there can be satisfactory resolution via discussion between the patient and practice, and this should always be the initial process for making a complaint.  You will be guided how to take a complaint further when there has not been satisfactory resolution.

Violence Policy

The NHS operate a zero tolerance policy with regard to violence and abuse and the practice has the right to remove violent patients from the list with immediate effect in order to safeguard practice staff, patients and other persons. Violence in this context includes actual or threatened physical violence or verbal abuse which leads to fear for a person’s safety. In this situation we will notify the patient in writing of their removal from the list and record in the patient’s medical records the fact of the removal and the circumstances leading to it.

Accessible Information Standard

The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that patients (or their carers) who have a disability or sensory loss receive information they can access and understand, for example in large print, braille or via email, and professional communication support if they need it, for example from a British Sign Language interpreter.

This applies to patients and their carers who have information and / or communication needs relating to a disability, impairment or sensory loss. It also applies to parents and carers of patients / service users who have such information and / or communication needs, where appropriate.

Individuals most likely to be affected by the Standard include people who are blind or deaf, who have some hearing and / or visual loss, people who are deaf blind and people with a learning disability. However, this list is not exhaustive.

If you feel that this applies to you or someone in your care please complete the attached form and hand it in at the surgery or collect a form from surgery if you wish.
