  • To treat doctors and all practice staff with courtesy and respect.
  • Please let us know if you are unable to keep an appointment.
  • Appointments are for one person - if two people need to see the doctor you need to make two appointments
  • Arrive on time for your appointments - or let us know if you are going to be late. This may lead to a shorter appointment.
  • Attend for monitoring when the doctor has advised this is necessary.
  • Request a home visit only if absolutely necessary.
  • You are responsible for your own health and that of your children. Please take the advice that is given to you at the practice.
