Violence and abuse is a growing concern. GPs and their staff have the right to care for others without the fear of being attacked or abused. The right of the practice to remove a violent patient will be extended to safeguard all those who might have reasonable fears for their safety, this includes practice staff, other patients and other bystanders present when the act of violence is committed or the behaviour took place. Violence includes actual or threatening physical violence or verbal abuse leading to fearing for a person's safety.
We ask that you treat your GP and the Practice Staff with respect.
