Missed Appointments
Due to the number of patients failing to attend for their appointment this may mean that you may not be able to see the Doctor on the day that you wish to.

In an attempt to try and resolve this, the practice has developed the following policy:

If you fail to attend for 2 consecutive appointments or 1 same day (emergency) appointment without informing us we will write to you asking if there are any specific problems preventing you from letting us know. If you fail to attend for a further appointment you may be removed from the practice list and have to find an alternative GP practice.

Practice Responsibilities

 

  • You will be treated as an individual and will be given courtesy and respect at all times. You have the right to be treated confidentially.
  • Respect for religious and cultural beliefs will be honoured.
  • Normally we will answer the telephone promptly and courteously.
  • You have the right to information about your own health (illness and treatment, possible side effects, prevention or recurring illness etc).
  • We will offer medical advice and information for promotion of good health.
  • You have the right to see your own medical records subject to the limitations of the law. A charge may be made.
  • Home Visits will be made when requested and if a doctor feels that you are not well enough to attend the surgery. The final decision rests with the doctor.

  • On registering as a new patient, you will be offered a health check with the nurse.
  • If your doctor believes that you need an second opinion, then they will arrange this.
  • You will be given a time to see a doctor in accordance with the system used in this practice. If there is a substantial delay for any reason you will be informed.
