UNATTENDED APPOINTMENTS IN APRIL 2019 Posted on 27 Sep 2019

In April 2019 77 patients did not attend their appointments.  This was 15 & a half hours of Nurse and Doctor time wasted. 

As demand for appointments continues to be high this is extremely dismaying for us as a practice - 77 other patients could have been seen if the unwanted appointments had been cancelled appropriatley. 

Please take it seriously that if you have an appointment and cannot attend you do need to tell us.  The demand for appointments is so high yet 77 patients effectively blocked other patients from having appointments.  As a surgery all we can do is highlight this as an issue and trust that our patient population will take note and help us to help all patients have access to our appointments.

We appreciate that our telephone lines can be very busy, so we would highly recommend accessing your appointments online, as you can cancel any nurse or GP appointment booked with the surgery within moments! All you need to do is visit reception, bring some photographic identification (so we can ensure we are giving access to the correct person) and complete a simple request form, so we can give you access immediately.
