ZERO TOLERANCE

The partners value their nursing, reception, administrative and secretarial teams and as you can see they are extremely busy and play an important role in our practice.

Whilst we appreciate that emotions sometimes run high, we do ask that you treat our team with respect and courtesy.

The Practice supports the NHS nationally agreed “Zero Tolerance Policy” which states that GPs and their staff have a right to care for others without fear of being attacked or abused.

We are here to help and it is not acceptable to verbally or physically abuse members of the team. We have a zero tolerance policy for abuse and will remove any patient who is physically or verbally abusive or threatening towards staff or other patients from our list.

If removed from our list, the patient may be placed on the 'violent patient scheme' operated by NHS England Area Team.
