Appointment DNA’s


Many patients fail to keep their appointments.  If patients do not cancel in advance we cannot give the slot to anyone else who really needs it.


This is costly for the practice and wastes staff time and resources.  Most of all it impacts on the length of time others have to wait for their appointments.


If you are unable to keep your appointment or no longer require it please let us know
