For especially busy times, you can now find in the reception area a tablet. This is when patients during their arrival will be able to input their first or last name or date of birth, click OK and the instruction on the screen should indicate please go straight into the Waiting Room. If not, then you need to see reception before going through to the Waiting Room. The tablet is synchronised to the Practice Management System, so will indicate to reception and the Nurse/GP that you, the patient has arrived. Alternately if you prefer you can still be checked in by the receptionist.
Not attending appointments with your GP/nurse has consequences. It occurs when a patient has booked an appointment & doesn’t turn up.
This is a loss of valuable time for when another patient could have been seen. If you cannot make the appointment, then please let us know a minimum of 3 hours in advance.
We understand that this is not possible if you have an early morning appointment, so please contact us first thing. This provides the practice opportunity to allocate that appointment time for another patient. If you do not notify the Practice you may be charged for not attending your appointment.
Unexpected emergencies can occur & for these we completely understand, however recent increased missed appointments have led us to introduce this policy.
