Failure to Attend an Appointment (DNA)
If you no longer require your appointment, please telephone in good time to cancel, so that we can offer this to another patient who might need it urgently.
To cancel your appointment, please telephone the surgery on 01787 222022 or cancel online.
We are following patient's who miss their appointments three times or more in the same year by writing to them that if they need assistance or guidance cancelling their appointments to please contact us for an explanation.
DID YOU KNOW ..... we had 136 wasted appointments in September 2017 when patients did not cancel their appointment this month. This equates to over 23 hours of lost clinician time. We could have offered these appointments to patients who say they find it difficult to book an appointment with our clinicians.
