Cervical smears

This is a message from Public Health England for all women who have cervical smears:
We have received reports today of a possible scam. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.
These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.
If you receive one of these calls, please contact the Surgery.
Thank you

To help our dispensers cope with the increased demand caused by Coronavirus, please don’t attempt to collect your medication early.  We are only dispensing one months medication as usual.

Zero Tolerance

It’s a very sad day when we feel we need to post this in our waiting room and on our website

The Practice takes it very seriously if a member of staff or one of the doctors or nursing team is treated in an abusive or violent way

The Practice supports the governments ‘Zero Tolerance’ campaign for Health Service Staff. This states that GPs and their staff have a right to care for others without fear of being attacked or abused. To successfully provide these services a mutual respect between all the staff and patients has to be in place. All our staff aim to be polite, helpful and sensitive to all patients’ individual needs and circumstances. They would respectfully remind patients that very often staff could be confronted with a multitude of varying and sometimes difficult tasks and situations, all at the same time. The staff understand that ill patients do not always act in a reasonable manner and will take this into consideration when trying to deal with a misunderstanding or complaint.

However, aggressive behaviour, be it violent or more commonly, abusive, will not be tolerated and may result in you being removed from the Practice list and, in extreme cases, the Police being contacted.

In order for the Practice to maintain good relations with their patients the Practice would like to ask all its patients to read and take note of the occasional types of behaviour that would be found unacceptable:

  • Using bad language or swearing at Practice staff
  • Any physical violence towards any member of the Primary Health Care Team, or other patients, such as pushing and shoving
  • Verbal abuse towards the staff including verbally insulting the staff
  • Racial abuse and sexual harassment will not be tolerated within this Practice
  • Persistent or unrealistic demands that cause stress to staff will not be accepted. Requests will be met wherever possible and explanations given when they cannot
  • Causing damage/stealing from the Practice premises, staff or patients
  • Obtaining drugs and/or medical services fraudulently

We ask you to treat your GP’s and their staff courteously at all times

Please be nice, we are trying to help you!
