"DID NOT ATTENDS"
Do you have difficulty obtaining an appointment?
EVERY month we have, on average,75 patients failIing to attend or cancel their appointment with the nurse or doctor.
Thus many valuable appointments were unable to be offered to anyone else.
The Practice has a robust DNA policy & we will continue to enforce this policy (it can be viewed under the "Appointments" section on our website).
