Patient rights and responsibilities
We will always treat you with courtesy and respect and trust you will do the same for us.
We may exercise our right to cease treatment if:
• You fail to arrive for an appointment
• You cancel without the required notice period of 24 hours
• You do not meet your financial commitments within 21 days
• Your non attendance for any reason at your given appointments causes your course of treatment to take longer than 8 weeks to complete.
If we agree to resume a course of treatment after the 8 week period it will be considered a new course of treatment and a new NHS charge will apply.
The practice operates a Data Protection policy in line with the requirements of the Information Commissioner and a Publication Scheme under the Freedom of Information Act.
The surgery does have access for wheelchairs which is by means of a moveable ramp. All surgeries are on the ground floor. There is no disabled toilet facility.
We do not book routine appointments 3,6 or 12 months in advance. We require patients to contact us 1 month before they are due to book their appointment.
Appointments for treatment are only booked 2 at a time.
Failure to attend the first appointment without informing the practice will result in further appointments being cancelled without notice.
Re-schedules with at least 24 hours notice are welcome. Less notice than this will result in a late cancellation. Recurrent late cancellations or missed appointments will result in no more appointments being offered at the practice.
If you arrive late for your appointment it is likely that the appointment will need to be rebooked.
