Roseworth Patient Charter


Our Expectation of You

  • Courtesy to the staff at all times – remember they are working under doctors’ orders.
  • Responding in a positive way to questions asked by the reception staff.
  • To attend appointments on time or give the practice adequate notice that they wish to cancel.   Someone else could use your appointment!
  • To engage with the practice when you are in for your annual check – this check often acts as a medication review  – ensuring it is safe for you to continue on repeat medication
  • An appointment is for one person only – where another member of the family needs to be seen or discussed, another appointment should be made and the Medical Record be made available.
  • Patients should make every effort when consulting the surgery to make best use of nursing and medical time – home visits should be medically justifiable and not requested for social convenience.
  • When patients are asked to give 48 hours’ notice for repeat prescriptions, please give us this time as it is to allow for accurate prescribing.

If the above does not happen then you may be asked to leave the surgery.

Our surgery exercises a Zero tolerance – this means:

Our staff come to work to care for others and it is important for all members of the public and our staff to be treated with courtesy and respect.

In line with the rest of the NHS, and to ensure this is fully observed, we have a Dignity at Work and Zero Tolerance Policy. This means that rude, aggressive or violent behaviour towards our staff or any member of the public within our practice premises will not be tolerated under any circumstance.

If this behaviour does occur, this may lead to the police being notified or patients being removed from our list. Thank you.
