Noticeboard

Zero Tolerance Policy - A heartfelt plea to all of our patients.

Unfortunately, we are seeing an increase in unacceptable behaviour from our patients which will ultimately result in driving staff away from the practice and will only make the services we provide harder to deliver. 

All of our staff are doing their very best in difficult circumstances and have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic.

To the majority of our patients who continue to be understanding and supportive, we thank you for your kindness and appreciate your tolerance. Demand for appointments has become significantly greater than capacity, and whichever way we manage our appointments, there is simply not enough to be able to see everyone when they want it.

We appreciate your frustrations at not being able to get through on the phone and having to wait longer for an appointment, or not being able to be seen on the day that you want. We are all on the same side and all want to ensure high quality care is delivered to our patients when needed.

"Everyone has the right to be safe at work, and we want to reiterate in the strongest possible terms that violence and aggression towards our staff will not tolerated. Staff facing abuse will always have the surgery's full support". 

Thank you for your support and understanding.

August Bank holiday 2022 - We will be closed on Monday 29th August and re-open on Tuesday 30th August. Further details can be found under Opening Times - Bank Holidays 2022.
