Code of Conduct

Help us make our clinic a safe place for everyone

The doctors at Jimboomba Medical Centre have a professional responsibility to be familiar with the Good Medical Practice: A Code of Conduct For Doctors In Australia. This code describes what is expected of all doctors and sets out the principles that characterise good medical practice and makes explicit the standards of ethical and professional conduct expected of doctors by their professional peers and the community.

The staff at Jimboomba Medical Centre follow a Code of Conduct where all employees will behave in a courteous and professional manner whilst maintaining the levels of service and care which the practice and our patients expect.

In return, Jimboomba Medical Centre requests all patients and visitors to the centre help us to make our clinic a safe place for everyone. We request that all parties treat everyone with respect.  We will not accept:

  • Swearing at staff or in the presence of staff/other patients
  • Shouting or making offensive remarks
  • Making verbal or physical threats
  • Racism
  • Attending when intoxicated with alcohol and/or drugs
  • Damaging or stealing property
  • Acting in a manner that is likely to cause harassment, alarm, or distress to others in the general practice

Anyone who carries out the above behaviour/s will be asked to leave and their future attendance at the practice may be discontinued resulting in having to seek health care elsewhere.

If you would like to discuss this code of conduct further, please don’t hesitate to contact the Practice Manager on (07) 5546 9766.
