Patient’s Rights and Responsibilities

You have a right to expect a high standard of medical care from our Practice and we will try, at all times, to provide the very best care possible, within the resources available. In order to assist us in this, we require that you take full responsibility for ensuring that you do not abuse the service.  For example, it is your responsibility to ensure that you keep medical appointments and follow the medical advice agreed.

Very occasionally a practice / patient relationship breaks down completely.  In this situation the patient may choose to register with a different practice.  The practice also has the right to remove the patient from their list. This would generally only follow advice that had failed to remedy the situation and we would normally give the patient a specific reason for the removal.
