We at Stour Surgery use a team approach to provide the best possible Clinical Care.
Having respect for you, your family and carers at all times, we aim to respond to your needs and the needs of the local community. If you have any suggestions or matters you wish to bring to our attention there is a box in reception or alternatively you can write, email or speak to any member of staff, the manager or a member of the Patients Circle.

We expect you to
The practice considers aggressive behaviour to be any personal, abusive and/or aggressive comments, cursing and/or swearing, physical contact and/or aggressive gestures. The practice will request the removal of any patient from the practice list who is aggressive or abusive towards a doctor, member of staff, other patient, or who damages property. All instances of actual physical abuse on any doctor or member of staff, by a patient or their relatives will be reported to the police as an assault.
Stour Surgery uses the telephone systems of the surgery to communicate with patients to a high degree. For medical legal reasons and to comply with the 'Law for Business Practice Regulations' we record all telephone calls to and from the surgery. To protect the privacy of any call and the confidentiality of information only the four partners, Dr Coupe, Dr Klein, Dr Carey and Dr Jenkinson, together with the practice manager and assistant manager will be able to access the recordings for the previous 6 months.
Access to the recordings will only be made when there is a specific business need and are not for the benefit of patients. Should any message need to be accessed then it will only take place when there are two of the above people in agreement as to the need to access the message.
A written record of the access will be kept. It is envisaged that it would be extremely rare that there will be any need to listen retrospectively to any call. If any patient has queries please contact the practice manager, Claire Brooks.
