DNA's (Did Not Attend)

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 1 hour 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.
