DID NOT ATTEND APPOINTMENT RATE

 Ever wondered why you couldn’t see the Doctor or Nurse sooner?

 Did you know that, in August 2016:

 66 appointments

were booked by patients who then failed to attend them

 26 Doctor appointments – equivalent to TWO afternoon surgeries*

and

40 Nurse appointments – equivalent to THREE morning surgeries*

If, in the future, you are unable to attend, please let us know in advance so that we can offer the appointment to someone else.

 

Thank you
