East Lindsey Medical Group

Violent or abusive behaviour

East Lindsey Medical Group supports the NHS ‘Zero Tolerance’ campaign. GPs and their staff are entitled to carry out their duties without fear of abusive, racist or violent behaviour. We will take steps to remove from the practice list any patient who behaves abusively or violently towards doctors, practice staff or other patients. This policy applies equally when offending behaviour takes place off the premises, eg during a home visit.
