In December 59 patients Did Not Attend their appointments. In total this adds up to 880 minutes of wasted time. If you cannot attend an appointment please contact the surgery at your earliest convenience to cancel (if you cancel at short notice and we can not fill the appointment it will still be marked as a missed appointment). Please note that due to the growing number of people not attending their appointments we have had to implement a new system for this. If you miss three or more appointments in three months you will be added to our frequent DNA (did not attend) list. This will not affect your ability to see a GP. You will be able to book an appointment but this slot will be double booked to ensure the GP time is being used efficiently. This means you will be given your appointment time like normal but may not be seen at that time.
Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend appointments now available
Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekend (on Saturday morning). Appointments will either take place at this practice or at another NHS setting nearby. Talk to the practice receptionist to find out more or book an appointment.
By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
