  • Treat all of our patients equally and with dignity and respect
  • Encourage patients to take part in decisions about their health and wellbeing and discuss any decision in a clear and transparent way
  • Learn from any mistakes and esnure that, should any occur, we fully investigate . If harm has been caused, we will provide an appropriate explanation and apology
  • Offer patients a named GP, or GPs, of choice where possible for continuity of care
