It is for the Doctor to judge whether a problem is urgent. The Doctor is entitled to refuse consultations without appointment or home visit at any time.
The Doctor has the right not to be disturbed outside working hours except in emergencies.
We have the right to refuse treatment, which we consider unnecessary and to expect our advice or treatment to be followed.
Registration with a Doctor is a voluntary relationship; and may be terminated by either party without explanation.
We try to provide a high quality service at all times, but if you feel you have not been treated as you should, you should speak or write to the practice manager, or one of the Doctors. All complaints will be taken seriously and investigated; and hopefully the matter will be resolved to the satisfaction of both parties.
