We work hard to provide the best possible service to our patients and we value your feedback. We make it a real priority to listen to our patients, so please let us know when things are working well. Equally, if you think there are things we can change in order to provide a better service, please tell us your ideas. And if things go wrong, we want to know and we will do our utmost to resolve the situation for you quickly. If you have a complaint you can speak to any of our staff, or our Practice Manager, Adrian Ilott. In certain situations, we may ask you to put your concerns in writing, in order that we can respond appropriately.

Our Duty of Care

 

As a responsible employer, we have a duty of care towards our staff. This duty of care extends to all patients and other users of our services too.

NHS England operates a ‘zero tolerance’ policy, which is fully endorsed by our practice, with regard to violence and abusive behaviour. The practice has the right to remove abusive patients from the patient list with immediate effect, in order to safeguard practice staff, patients and other persons. Abuse 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.
