The NHS operate a zero tolerance policy with regard to violence and abuse and the practice has the right to remove violent patients from the list with immediate effect in order to safeguard practice staff, patients and other persons. Violence in this context includes actual or threatened physical violence or verbal abuse which leads to fear for a person's safety. In this situation we will notify the patient in writing of their removal from the list and record in the patient's medical records the fact of the removal and the circumstances leading to it.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL WE TOLERATE THIS BEHAVIOUR.

We would still encourage patients who are immune suppressed or have respiratory symptoms to continue to wear masks in surgery.
This may be subject to change in the future.
