Missed Appointments & How to Cancel an Appointment
If you are unable to keep your appointment with the doctor or nurse then please cancel it.
If you notify us then your appointment can be offered to someone else. Each week we lose and average of 20 appointments because patients do not let us know they will not be attending. Although the number has significantly reduced since the introduction of our weekly release appointment system it is still too high.
If you do not attend your booked appointment please do not come to the Emergency Surgery unless you have a problem requiring urgent attention. Routine problems must be dealt with at a booked appointment. If you think you need to be seen urgently please phone our On Call Service
Patients who fail to attend and do not notify us are at risk of being removed from our list.
Please consider our other patients and give them the opportunity to have your appointment space.
To cancel an appointment please call our number and choose option 5
Home visits are available for patients who cannot attend the Practice because of their medical condition. If you think a visit is necessary then please call before 10.30 am if possible. Your request will be assessed by the Nurse or Doctor and in some situations you may be asked to attend the Practice. Please do not make house call requests if you are well enough to attend as we can see several patients in the Practice in the time it takes to do one home visit.
