The practice is committed to preserving the dignity, privacy, equality and independence of its patients. The practice will involve the patients in their own care as much as practicable through a process of self-care and education, geared to individual needs, and will encourage them and their families or carers to become involved in decisions relating to care delivery.
The practice will offer choice to patients consistent with local and national resources, and will offer sufficient information to enable a balanced decision to be made.
Patients will at all times be treated with care and respect regardless of age, sex, religion, nationality or origin, or any disability or medical condition. The practice will fully observe the requirements and the ethos of the Equality Act in all dealings.
