Selsey Medical Practice Philosophy of Care
This is very simple - every patient is entitled to receive the highest standard of care available. The doctors and staff wish to provide a friendly, efficient and personal service to all of our patients and we believe that in general we succeed.
We are not complacent and constantly strive to improve the care that we offer, actively engaging in audit of our performance in order to improve both our clinical performance and the service that we provide. The doctors and staff regularly attend educational courses to keep abreast of developments in care.
Families, children and their problems are very important to the doctors and we believe that an understanding of these problems and relationships forms the basis of a good general practice.
Our Mission Statement
'We strive to provide the highest standard of care available; we work to empower our patients to manage their own health'
