  • Missed Appointments

    • Due to an increase in the number of wasted appointments through patients failing to attend without informing the surgery, it has become necessary to implement the following policy:
      • "If you fail to attend 2 appointments over a 6 month period the Practice will write to you asking if there are any specific problems preventing you from letting us know.  If you fail to attend for a 3rd appointment you will be asked to speak to the Practice Manager and you may be removed from the list and have to find an alternative Practice.  Failure to respond to any of the above will result in possible removal from the Practice list."
    • Please ensure you cancel appointments where necessary. If you cannot attend your appointment for any reason please let us know as soon as possible (or click here) as this can be used by other patients and helps to reduce the overall waiting time for routine appointments.
      • During February there were 130 missed appointments where patients did not attend or cancel booked appointments.  This equates to 31 hours or 1 doctor not seeing patients for 4 days .

    Thank you for your cooperation of this matter.
