Non Attendances

Unfortunately we had a total of 50 missed appointments in March 2024 which has resulted in 13.3  hours of wasted appointment time. Missed appointments cause the waiting times for an appointment to be much longer than necessary. 

Patients will be removed from the practice list if they continue to miss appointments. 

You can cancel your appointments by phone, email or by using your online services app.
