Patient Responsibilities

  • Please treat all surgery staff with the same respect – we are all just doing our job
  • Do not ask for information about anyone other than yourself
  • Tell us of any change of name or address, so that our records are accurate
  • Only request an urgent appointment if appropriate. Home visits should only be requested if you are really too ill to attend surgery. Night visits should be for emergencies only – the Doctor On-Call will be at work as usual the next day
  • Please cancel your appointment if you are unable to attend
  • Please be punctual, but be prepared to wait if your own consultation is delayed by an unexpected emergency
  • Please allow sufficient time for your consultant’s letter, or the results of any tests, to reach us
  • You will be advised of the usual length of time to wait
  • Use the tear off slip to request your repeat prescription whenever possible. Please attend for review, when asked, before your next prescription is due
  • Do let us know whenever you feel we have not met our responsibility to you
  • We would, of course, be pleased to hear when you feel praise is due as well.
