We have to stop making excuses for abusive patients


I feel very strongly about this. I had a male patient 6 foot plus who always insisted on seeing me, often at short notice. He has been repeatedly abusive to reception staff as well as myself. He was sent a zero tolerance letter following chucking an object at one of reception. Following a consultation where he called me a f***ing c**t I asked him to leave. He complained to NHSE and I was criticised. Makes my blood boil.
