Patients’ Responsibilities

Your responsibilities to us:

Help us to help you.

  • Please let us know if you change your name, address or telephone number.
  • Please do everything you can to keep appointments. Tell us as soon as possible if you cannot, so that the appointment can be given to another patient.
  • Please ask for home visits only when the patient is too ill to visit the surgery.
    Test results take time to reach us, so please do not ring before you have been asked to do so.
  • We ask that you treat the doctors and staff with courtesy and respect.
  • Remember, you are responsible for your own health and the health of your children. We will give you our professional help and advice in the hope that you will act on it.
