Removal of Patients from the Practice List

Unfortunately there may be an occasional circumstance whereby the doctor/patient relationship is compromised, making it impossible for the doctor to continue to provide medical services for the patient in question.

Although this is rare, the following process would be put in place, should such a situation be reached:

The doctors will have a meeting to discuss the situation and decide on a course of action.

They will write to the patient to advise them of the action which has been decided upon. (This may involve a formal interview or removal from the practice list. )

Full details of this policy are available from the practice manager.
