Violent or abusive behaviour

We take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behaviour against any of our staff or patients. If a patient is violent or abusive, they will be warned to stop their behaviour. If they persist, we may exercise our right to take action to have them removed, immediately if necessary, from our list of patients.

Zero Tolerance

Physical violence and verbal abuse are a growing concern. General Practitioners, Practice Nurses and other practice staff have the right to care for others without fear of being attacked. We ask that you treat your Doctor’s and practice staff properly – without violence or abuse.
