3 Reasons not to miss your appointment

Posted by: Mark - Posted on:

  1. Help other patients. – If you book an appointment but don’t attend, another patient will miss out!
  2. Reduce our workload. – Failure to attend or cancel an appointment increases administrative work.
  3. Save the NHS money. – According to Government data, a GP appointment costs up to £50. Missed appointments waste money that you have invested in the NHS.

How can you help?

Here are 3 simple ways you can help us to reduce the number of wasted appointments:

  • Encourage family members and friends to attend or cancel their appointment.
  • Write down your appointment and/or add to your phone calendar. Even better, set a reminder.
  • Always cancel unwanted appointments, no matter how late in the day.
