Removal of Patients from Our List

The Medical Centre Practice Protocol for Removal of Patients

Due to incidents that have occurred within The Medical Centre we have found it necessary to implement a protocol to highlight behaviour that will not be tolerated.

Patient’s who breach any of the following will be promptly removed from our practice list.

  1. Theft from practice premises or personnel
  2. Violent, threatening, abusive behaviour or sexual advances towards staff or other patients whilst in practice premises.
  3. Fraudulently obtaining drugs.
  4. Deliberately lying to the doctor or other member of the healthcare team in order to obtain a service or benefit by deception.
  5. A patient who has moved out of the practice boundary but has failed to register with a practice in their new area.
  6. Persistent non attendance.
