LAST MONTH AT THE SURGERY 498 PEOPLE MISSED THEIR APPOINTMENTS Please let us know if you cannot attend

Last month we at the surgery had 498 appointments which patients failed to attend or notify us that they would be unable to keep.

Available appointments are at a premium and every wasted appointment is time that could have been used for another patient to visit with a clinician. With this in mind we implore patients to contact the surgery and let us know if you will be unable to attend an appointment.

Whilst the more notice we have the better, even as little as an hour before your scheduled appointment could be the difference between someone else being seen that day or having to wait weeks to see their chosen clinician.

Please help us help you by letting us know when you can’t attend your appointments.
