Leaving Our List

You can leave the doctor's list at any time. This may be because you are moving away. You do not have to tell us you are leaving, but it would be helpful to us to know.

In very rare circumstances you may be removed from the list. This would only occur when we feel that the trust that must be present between you and the doctors no longer exists. Any abuse of, or violence towards the staff or doctors will lead to immediate removal.
