Please Help Us To Help You
- Keep appointments made with us or cancel in plenty of time.
- Only request a house call if too ill to attend surgery.
- Report to receptionist on arrival (or use the automated patient check in on the wall opposite reception)
- Bear with us if there is a delay - this may be due to another patient needing additional time or an emergency. we will try and keep you informed of anticipated delays.
- Use our service responsibly and do not expect immediate treatment for non-urgent / routine conditions.
- Utilise the services of other professionals in the practice - the GP is not necessarily the most appropriate person to see.
- Use other avenues of help - pharmacy, NHS Direct etc where appropriate.
- Allow sufficient time for processing of repeat prescription requests and do not pressure staff to process unauthorised medication requests.
- Keep us informed of any name, address and telephone number changes.
- Treat us with respect. We will not tolerate verbal or physical abuse.
