Violent Patients

It is the aim of Forest End Surgery to provide a safe and pleasant environment in which patients and visitors may receive healthcare and staff may carry out their work. A code of conduct is displayed in our surgery outlining how we expect patients to behave when attending or telephoning the surgery. Any person acting in an unacceptable manner will be dealt with in accordance with the code.

Violent behaviour will not be tolerated and will result in police prosecution alongside removal from the practice list.

Training Practice

The practice has been approved for GP student training. Each year one or more fully qualified doctors with experience in hospital medicine may spend time with the practice as part of their preparation to become general practitioners.

They share all aspects of patient care and the partners welcome their contribution to the team. Occasionally medical students, practice nurses in training, and student community nurses may also spend time with the practice.
