WE DO NOT OFFER EAR SYRINGING WALK IN PATIENTS
Please Note: We do not provide on-going care for Walk-in Patients. Please return to your own GP for further help or for results etc.
Both the clinical and support staff will work to the highest standards to provide the appropriate and best services for our patients. They will be civil and courteous in their contact with all patients.
We respect your right to privacy and keep all your health information confidential and secure. It is important that the NHS keeps accurate and up-to-date records about your health and treatment so that those treating you can give you the best possible advice and care.
This information is only available to those involved in your care and you should never be asked for personal medical information by anyone not involved in your care.
We aim to treat all our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similarly respectful way.
We take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behaviour against any of our staff or patients. In any case of actual or threatened use of violence, the person(s) involved will be asked to leave the premises.
Patients threatening or using violence will not be seen by our clinicians and NHS Norfolk may make special arrangements for their future health care.
