  • Experienced irretrievable breakdown of the doctor / patient relationship
  • Exhibited violent or threatening behaviour to any practice staff
  • Exhibited rudeness / swearing to any practice staff
  • Persistently did not attend appointments without cancelling
  • Late cancellation of appointment, resulting in the appointment not being able to be offered to another patient.
