The Rights and Responsibilities of the patient, including keeping appointments
As a patient you are expected to provide complete and accurate information about your health including present condition, past illnesses, hospitalisations, medications, natural products and vitamins, and any other matters that pertain to your health. Provide complete and accurate information including your full name, address, home telephone number, date of birth. Ask questions when you do not understand what your doctor or nurse tells you about your diagnosis or treatment. Inform your doctor if you are considering alternative therapies.
The practice supports the Government’s NHS zero tolerance zone campaign. Violence and abuse is a growing concern. GPs and their staff have the right to care for others without fear of being attacked or abused. Violent patients will be reported to the police and struck-off the GP’s list. We ask that you treat your GP and practice staff properly – without violence or abuse.
