Did Not Attend (DNA) Appointments
The vast majority of our patients attend their appointments or let us know if they cannot attend or no longer need them. We really appreciate this as it means we can free those appointments up to be used by other patients.
However, a small but significant number of patients miss their appointments without cancelling them. This means the doctor or nurse is waiting for the patient to arrive, when they could have been seeing another patient.
If you repeatedly fail to attend appointments, you may be removed from the practice list and may be required to find an alternative doctor.
