Our Statement of Purpose (Part 2)
Aims and Objectives:
The Practice provides a wide range of Primary Medical Services under both NHS and independent arrangements, all of which wherever applicable apply evidenced-based medical standards as established by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence.
Patient's Rights and Diversities are always honoured and respected at all times. The dignity and human rights of our patients are paramount. We respect the duties and responsibilities of a doctor as laid out by the GMC, as well as the principles and values of Good Medical Practice which underpin our patient and healthcare ethos.
For routine care, we will carry out regular examinations and assessments to establish the needs and wishes of individual patients. Treatment options are explained and choices respected.
If someone has an emergency and is a registered patient, we will endeavour to speak to them and give advice on the day of contact and to see them within an appropriate period following contact. Other emergency care is by arrangement and availability.
Patients are regularly consulted through individual informal discussions, newsletters, and a variety of Patient Satisfaction Surveys.
Appointments are established according to the needs of patients and the individual, with the appointments system being transparent and easy to understand.
The individuals requirement for privacy will be respected at all times and all information relating to individuals will be treated in a confidential manner.
