We have a very high demand for appointments. This is made more difficult by the number of missed appointments, particularly when the apppointment has been extended to 30 or 40 minutes.
Listed below are the number of appointments missed in 2016/17, for both GPs and Nurses:
January 2016 37
January 2017 48
This equates to between 6 1/2 hours to 22 hours approximately of wasted time per month which could have been used seeing patients.
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please telephone 0300 1231893 and let us know. Even calling 10 minutes before the appointment was due would be a help ! Please be considerate to other patients.
