Our Vision

  1. blood_pressure4The purpose of the practice is to provide the best possible medical and psychological care to our patients. Our first priority is to achieve this purpose.

  2. We are committed to looking after our team and ourselves through respectful personal relationships, good employment practices and an attractive working environment.

  3. In our work with patients, we aim to balance medical practice based on scientific evidence, with a wider understanding of what General Practice is often about: a search for meaning in times of illness and distress.

  4. We do our best to correct the effects of social injustice whenever we can. Therefore we aim to identify and address the additional needs of the socially and medically vulnerable including infants and children, the elderly, the isolated, the disabled and mentally ill and the victims of political, racial, religious and sexual discrimination.

  5. We are committed to working in collaboration with other agencies including those in the Health and Social Services and to fostering good relations with all carers and their representative organisations.

  6. We try to resist official, financial or social pressure to do things which make no sense in terms of evidence or social justice, or which may work to the detriment of patients.

  7. We seek good livelihoods for ourselves, but do not make money our main priority. By choice we have no private patients.

  8. We aim to promote a culture of learning involving all team members, and to take a significant part in training other professionals.

  9. We recognise that there are serious limitations of time and resources on what we can achieve in the Practice, and we are, therefore, committed to pressing for constant improvements in the Health Service. We encourage and support members of the team who wish to be active in local and national representative organisations.

  10. We believe that we have an important part to play in promoting health as well as treating illness, but the causes of ill health often lie beyond our reach, so we are also committed to pressing for wider social, political and ecological change.

  11. We recognise we have responsibility to the health needs of the whole practice population and not just the individual.
