Missed appointments

The impact of patients failing to attend appointment can be significant and may result in you not being able to see a particular GP on the day that you wish to.

In an attempt to try and resolve this, the practice has developed the following policy:

  • If you fail to attend two consecutive appointments without informing us, we will write to you asking whether there are specific problems preventing you from letting us know.
  • If you fail to attend a further appointment, you may be removed from the practice list and have to find an alternative.
