A leading medical practice has warned members of the public that it will not tolerate any further abuse of its staff.
Millbrae Surgery in Stranorlar is one of the county’s leading GP practices.
However, the surgery has now posted a message on its official Facebook page pleading with the public not to abuse staff.
A spokesperson wrote “Our staff have been working hard throughout the pandemic, and we have continued to provide services to the best of our ability.
“We are here to help. Unfortunately, we have had a significant amount of verbal abuse and verbal aggression towards our staff members, which is very upsetting.
“Our staff deserve to be treated with dignity and respect at all times, without the risk of threatening or abusive language or behaviour.”
The specific nature of the abusive incidents has not been outlined.
However, the surgery said it will not tolerate any further abuse of its staff.
The statement adds “This behaviour will not be tolerated and offenders may be asked to leave the practice.
“We operate a zero-tolerance policy towards any abusive behaviour or language.”Tags:
