Non-NHS services

Most of our services are provided under the National Health Service, and we do not offer private primary medical care. However, some services are not paid for by the NHS, (e.g. insurance reports and medicals, occupational health, holiday travel vaccinations), and if you request a service which is not paid for by the NHS, you will be told what the charge is likely to be. There is a list of commonly requested services and their prices in reception. Please ask if you would like to know more.

 

DVLA Fit to Drive declarations by your GP following licence expiry during lockdown

During COVID many drivers’ licences have expired and DVLA gave extensions so that they could continue to drive and work. For many drivers though this extension is coming to an end. Drivers are now being told by DVLA to ask their GP if they are “fit to drive” so that they can continue to drive under Section 88 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 (RTA 1988). DVLA has produced a leaflet which explains RTA 1988:

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/695575/inf188x6-can-i-drive-while-my-application-is-with-dvla.pdf#:~:text=Can%20I%20drive%20while%20my%20application%20is%20with,%28runs%20out%29%20while%20we%20are%20processing%20the%20application

Please be aware that GPs will not produce a 'fit to drive' declaration even thought the DVLA leaflet suggests that they will. We are happy to give you a summary of your medcial record, which should help the DVLA to make a decision.

Zero Tolerance Statement

Our staff come to work to care for others, and it is important for all members of the public and our staff to be treated with respect.
We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similary way.

We take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behaviour againist any of our staff or patients. if a patient is violent or abusive, they will be asked to stop. if they persist, we may exercise our rights to take action to have them removed, immediately if necessary from our pratice list.

The practice considers thratening behaviour to be:

Attempted or actual aggressive threatening physical actions made towards any member of staff.
The use of aggressive, threatening or abusive language, (including raising of the voice, swearing and cursing, shouting) which threatens or intimidates staff.
In line with the rest of the NHS, and to ensure this is fully observed we have a Zero Tolerance policy in place, whereby any aggressive or violent behaviour towards our staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Anyone giving verbal abuse to members of the staff will be sent a letter from the Practice stating that this behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in the removal from the Practice patient list. There will be no appeal process.

We hope that you will understand and welcome this policy which is in place for the best interest of our hard working staff as well as our patients.
