Your Commitment To The Practice

Grange Medical Group

Your Commitment To The Practice

  • To notify us if you change your name, address and/or telephone number.
  • To be courteous to all members of staff.
  • To attend your appointment on time.
  • To be patient if surgeries are running late, you will be seen or offered an alternative appointment if you prefer.
  • To give adequate notice if you no longer need your appointment, so that it may be offered to another patient.
  • Home visits should be medically justified and not requested because it is socially convenient to do so.
  • Be flexible in accepting an appointment with another Doctor or Nurse when the Doctor or Nurse of your choice is not available.
  • Try not to save up all your problems for one appointment. If you require more time please ask for a longer appointment at reception.
  • Make one appointment per person. A Doctor or Nurse cannot see a whole family in one consultation.
  • Never share your prescriptions with anyone else, even if they seem to have the same problem as you - it could be very dangerous.
