Dear patients of Plas Menai Health Centre.
In recent weeks, the level of abuse directed at staff working within the health centre has increased to unacceptable levels. Abuse of individuals whether physical or otherwise is not acceptable in any society. This is more so disappointing understanding that the individuals to which the abuse is directed towards, are doing their best, under difficult circumstances, to support patients.
We accept frustration and that recent events such as the change in clinical systems [All of which is being done to improve our future service] – will have increased levels of frustration towards the health centre. However, we can not accept abuse of our staff to which we have a duty of care.
In the last five years only one patient has been removed from our patient listing due to threats made against the life of staff. We have in that period issued four warnings.
Our policy evidentially has been to be tolerate the frustration felt by patients. Our ability to manage that tolerance and the welfare of our staff is becoming more challenging however.
We subsequently ask that patients:
1. Tone down their criticism of the health centre;
2. Present factual matters rather than misinform which is more often the case – particularly when using social media;
3. Consider raising frustrations in a more meaningful manner which may support our efforts to improve – you can do this by following our ‘Concerns’ policy or alternatively emailing your thoughts directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will endeavour to respond;
4. Consider joining our ‘Patient Engagement Group’ [PEG].
Continued efforts to abuse our staff will not be tolerated. We will issue letters of warning to patients who continue to direct their abuse at our staff. We will then, if matters persist, be left with no option than to remove abusive patients from our service.
Richard – 10 August 2022.

….Our service changes for dealing with the Operational risk presented by COVID-19
As a result of the risk posed by COVID-19, we have been required to make significant changes to the way in which we
provide service to our patients. With immediate effect the health center will:
Adopt a ‘Triage and Invite’ service
this means that ALL patients will be required to process through a telephone triage prior to being invited into the health center for an appointment.
NOT permit patients
to attend the health centre without an invite to an appointment unless: - They are delivering a prescription request; - Dropping off samples;
NOT invite patients
to attend the health centre at 8.30am to secure an appointment – all appointment are to be made by phone.
to uplift their prescriptions direct from their chosen pharmacy and to wear face coverings if invited to attend the medical centre premises.
The health centre needs to retain resilience through this time and we ask our patients to support our changes and to
also comply with the advice given by Public Health Wales
DO NOT attend the health centre if you feel you have COVID-19 symptoms.
We ask ALL our patients to support us at this time as we stand intent on doing our best to support you - we wish you all the best in health!!
