Our surgery is fully wheel chair accessible and all our staff have completed disability awareness training. We endeavour to be as helpful as possible to all patients. Shouting and swearing at practice staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances and patients who are abusive will be removed from the patient list. Our staff are here to help you. If you have an appointment at the surgery and are unsure what assistance is available to you please contact the surgery
Breast feeding Welcome Venue
The University Surgery is a Breastfeeding Welcome venue, that provides breastfeeding women with a comfortable and safe environment to nurse when they are out and about with their babies. The University Surgery is aware of its responsibilities to avoid discrimination of breastfeeding women under the Equality Act 2010. The surgery welcomes babies of any age to be breastfed in any public area of its premises. All our staff will support the needs and rights of mothers breastfeeding.
The surgery is fully computerised. Consultations, correspondence and any contacts between patient and practice are stored on a clinical software package. No person can access this information without a personal code, which is regularly changed. All information is stored in accordance with the Data Protection Act. No information about a patient, current or past, is released to any agency without express written permission from the patient. On leaving the practice, all the data is downloaded to produce a hard copy, which is then dispatched to the appropriate Health Authority.
We operate a practice complaints procedure as part of the NHS system for dealing with complaints. Our system meets all national criteria. Our practice manager / practice administrator will give you further information. Our practice complaints leaflet gives details of the procedure and is available from reception. Our aim is to give you the highest possible standard of service and we try to deal with any problems that may occur.
