Refusal to join the Practice

On occasions the practice does have the right to refuse a patient wishing to join the list. Such occasions are:

  • A patient having previously been removed from the practice list due to an irreconcilable breakdown in the doctor/patient relationship.
  • A patient with a history of violence.
  • A patient who is from a country where there are no reciprocal arrangements and therefore not entitled to free NHS care.
