Zero Tolerance Statement

As a healthcare organisation we are very aware that visiting can, at times, be stressful and concerning for patients. Delays in obtaining appointments and delays sometimes due to unforeseen emergency appointments, can also add to these concerns.

We always strive to meet patient expectation and deliver the highest standards of healthcare. For the vast majority of our patients, we achieve this despite the finite resources and steadily increasing demand for services that exists today within the NHS.

Our staff come to work to care for others, and it is important for all members of the public and our staff to be treated with respect.

In line with the rest of the NHS and to ensure this is fully observed we have instigated a Dignity at Work and Zero Tolerance policy, whereby aggressive or violent behavior towards our staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Anyone who verbally abuses a member of practice staff will be sent a letter from the Practice Manager confirming that this behavior will not be tolerated. Any future violation of this policy may result in removal from the Practice patient list. The Police will be called in all cases of violence.

We are sure you will understand that appropriate behavior is absolutely necessary for our staff and patients and that non observance will not be accepted.

Benzodiazepines Medication

This Surgery does not issue repeat (on going) Benzodiazepine prescriptions to newly registered patients. Patients who are taking this type of medication and wish to register with us will be offered an 8 week reduction and then stop programme. Agreement with this programme is a strict requirement for registration with this Surgery.

Existing patients taking regular Benzodiazepines will be asked to attend surgery for a medication review with the GP.

Patients unwilling to comply with this programme are advised to consider registering with another practice.

How to register

We normally accept new patients from Scholes, Whelley, Aspull and Ince. If you are within our practice boundaries, you will need to fill in a new patient registration form and health questionnaire here in the surgery.

Please follow this link to check if you live within our boundary

On registration all new patients will be given an initial telephone appointment with the Healthcare Assistant in order to carry out a new patient health screening – where necessary this may be conducted in a face to face appointment.  Patients on regular medication are also given an appointment with the doctor to discuss any long term chronic conditions and for medication review.
