Zero Tolerance

Please click here and watch this short You Tube clip, to understand the pressure our Practice Staff are under everyday and help stop the abuse.

As a GP practice we have been open throughout the Covid Pandemic, to be here for patients should they need us, like everybody else we have also had to adjust to the pandemic, however we have always remained open.

We have continuously provided GP, ANP(Advanced Nurse Practitioner),Practice Nurse and HCA (Health Care Assistant's)appointments.

To protect Patients and Staff we maintained social distancing in a small waiting area, by the GP's triaging patients and then if required the GP's booking the face to face appointments. 

We can understand it has been a difficult time for everyone, and we have all had to adjust. Please remember that all our staff have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic and continue to do so, staff have cancelled their time off, worked extra hours to help support the extremely increased workload and help support the vaccination programme. As a practice we ask that you please take a few minutes to watch the You Tube link above and just see what our staff have to endure on a daily basis.  PLEASE BE KIND AND RESPECT OUR STAFF.

We'd like to thank you for your patience & understanding during this difficult time.

The Herbert Protocol

Herbert Protocol Information Leaflet     The Herbert Protocol Registration Form

The Herbert Protocol was first introduced by West Yorkshire Police and is now a national scheme which encourages carers to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a venerable person going missing.  The idea is to complete a form, recording all vital details and information such as if there is any medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located and a photograph. There is nothing more frightening than when a loved one, friend or neighbour fails to return when they should. For people living with dementia, this could be quite common and The Herbert Protocol could provide you with some peace of mind. Please see the above leaflet for further information and the form to register.
