Zero Tolerance

We all have bad days, and when we feel ill we may feel ‘down’ and a litter more irritable than normal.  All our staff are here to help you.  Reception staff are following procedures that help the practice to function efficiently.  Staff have the right to work in a safe and secure environment and we, as employers, have the legal responsibility to provide that safe and secure environment.

The practice will not tolerate:

  • Verbal abuse to staff which prevents them from doing their job or makes them feel unsafe
  • Threats of violence or actual violence to a GP or a member of his or her staff.

The GPs have the right to remove from their patient register list any patient who behaves in the above manner.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

– A high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
– A new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.
