Breakdown of GP/Patient Relationship

If at any time you feel that there is a breakdown of the doctor/patient relationship and you wish to discuss this with someone, please contact the Practice Manager.

The GPs at the Practice appreciate that there may be situations when it might be better for both the patient and the GP if a patient registers with a different doctor. Please do not hesitate to speak to the Supervisor at Reception or the Practice Manager so that arrangements for a transfer can be made.

Requesting a different GP will in no way affect the future care of the patient or the services they receive. However, doctors usually like to be made aware of such requests, so they can reflect on the reasons why the request has been made in order to develop their communication, consultation and clinical skills where necessary.
