A general practitioner member recently contacted MIGA for advice in relation to their attempts to end a long-standing therapeutic relationship with a patient. It is not appropriate to end the doctor-patient relationship during an acute illness. The patient is entitled to have appropriate continuity of care. So, if you have found yourself in a relationship that has lost its meaning for you, what can you do to minimize the stress on your partner and on.
In this case, we advised our member that, as a general rule, there is no legal obligation on a doctor to consult a patient unless in the context of a patient requiring emergency medical treatment which creates an ethical rather than legal obligation. However, we further advised that a doctor cannot refuse to consult a patient based on unlawful discrimination for example, refusing to treat a patient based on reasons of sex, race, marital status, religion or disability.
In many situations, doctors have tried various strategies and have ultimately reached the conclusion that it is no longer practicable to continue the therapeutic relationship. A Code of Conduct for Doctors in Australia specifically discusses the obligations a doctor has to a patient when ending a professional relationship. In some circumstances, the relationship between a doctor and patient may become ineffective or compromised, and you may need to end it. Good medical practice involves ensuring that the patient is adequately informed of your decision and facilitating arrangements for the continuing care of the patient, including passing on relevant clinical information.
We recommend a number of steps be followed in the event that a doctor decides to end the therapeutic relationship with a patient, including: Good communication is vital. Do not assume that a patient will pick up on hints or suggestions to see another practitioner. Document any patient non-compliance. Do not expect to be able to defend the termination of the relationship based on memory.
Nephew joins them as Auntie explains that the four of them breathe House 's air, eat his food, live on his "back" and "smell its armpits" as Amy points out by how the air smells.

House then take control of the three natives, greeting the travellers — specifically the Doctor as a Time Lord. House only says it's a pity as the Time Lords were kind. House offers the Doctor, Amy, and Rory free rein for as long as they'd like, giving them the opportunity to explore.
As the travellers leave, Auntie, Uncle and Nephew look on with worried faces. In the meantime, Idris has awoken and begins babbling random lines and gibberish. She then realises the Doctor isn't there and calls out for her "thief". Nearby, the Doctor hears her and tells his companions that he knows House is lying because of what he heard on Nephew's translator.

However, Amy points out even if there are other Time Lords, the Doctor will have to explain his annihilation of the rest of their species to them; he wants to be forgiven.
Wondering what the Doctor needs to help in his search, Amy is instructed to retrieve the sonic screwdriver from his spare coat. Amy gives him her phone to keep in touch and leaves Rory to look after him. However, Rory follows Amy on the Doctor's orders. He believes the Doctor will be okay, but Amy thinks different — the Doctor might get emotional and make mistakes. Amy calls the Doctor, asking him where he said the sonic screwdriver was and is told to have a long look for it; the Doctor actually has it with him and locks the TARDIS with it.
He then traces the distress signals to a cupboard. He is dismissive of the idea of all the Time Lords being in a cupboard but is soon prompted to open it when the voices calling for help continue.
Avant - How to end the doctor-patient relationship
Inside the cupboard, the Doctor discovers the horrific truth: Auntie and Uncle — at House's behest — released the hypercube as a means of luring the Doctor to the asteroid.
Distraught, the Doctor turns on them and deduces that House has been "repairing" them with bits and pieces of the Time Lords who have landed here. Angered, he tells them to run. The Doctor says that he lied and is sorry, but then wonders how Idris knew that finding the hypercubes could have made him angry. He tells his companions to stay still and hangs up. Amy realises the Doctor is emotional, which is very bad.
A green glow comes from outside the windows, prompting Rory to agree with her, at least with the part about their predicament being bad.

While the Doctor's reluctant to believe her, he comes to realise it's true when she explains that she "borrowed" him because she wanted to see the universe, and he was the only Time Lord that was mad enough. He releases her from the cage in which she has been imprisoned and, with her help, deduces that the House "eats TARDISes" by feeding on the Rift energy bursting from them; but because he can't "eat" a TARDIS without blowing a hole in the universe, the House removed the matrix and placed it inside Idris with the hope that it would die off on its own, far away from the console room.
Realising that Amy and Rory are in danger, the Doctor rushes outside. He calls them, telling them to "get the hell out of there!

The Doctor is left dumbstruck by these events; he has no idea what to do, which causes him to smile with joy. He then slaps himself to get back on task of following after House to save his companions.
Inside the control room, the House reveals his presence and explains that he will kill Amy and Rory unless they can defend why they should live; Rory claims House needs entertainment, which is why Auntie and Uncle lived on his old home — he likes to make others suffer. Hearing this, House simply tells them to entertain him then, ordering them to run — which they do without much persuasion. Auntie explains it's time for them to "pop off", but Uncle is against it — without House around, they lack the source of their life.
They then die, albeit comically. Idris tells the Doctor they have to go where she landed, but stops from a pain in her side, Idris only has a short time left to live. Remembering that they are in a "TARDIS junkyard," the Doctor and Idris decide to construct a TARDIS control console from the remnants of other models, though Idris rebukes the Doctor briefly when she reminds him that the so-called "junkyard" is in fact filled with the corpses of her sisters.
Elsewhere, as they run through the TARDIS corridors, Amy and Rory must contend with House's mind games; first, he separates them, then seemingly places Rory in a faster time stream than Amy whereby he ages and dies in a matter of minutes, devastating her.
