or in any threatening manner whatsoever, will risk removal from the practice

Freedom Of Information
The Freedom Of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to the ‘classes’ of information the practice intends to routinely make available.
Details of the scheme are available from reception or the practice manager.
Failure to attend appointments
Appointments are always in high demand and we are unable to tolerate missed appointments without prior notification so that it can be offered to someone else. Missed appointments result in wasted valuable clinical time and longer delays for appointments for other patients. Patients who regularly fail to attend appointments without giving us any or sufficient notice will receive a warning letter from us. If they then continue to fail to attend without notice they will almost certainly be asked to register elsewhere.
