Did Not Attend (DNA) Appointments - February 2019 Total 78
78 Patients did not attend for their appointment with the GP or Nurse in February 2019. This is an INCREASE of 16 PATIENTS since January 2019.
In the current climate and increasing pressure for appointments it is important that patients who cannot keep their appointment make the effort to cancel it and give as much notice as possible so that this appointment can be give to another patient who is waiting on an appointment.
You can now also do this ONLINE.
The Practice has implemented a more rigorous DNA policy and frequent offenders will eventually be removed from the Practice list. This has helped to almost halve our DNA appointments in just over one year but 78 wasted appointments in one month is still unacceptable.
***We have REMOVED 3 patients from our list in 2018 for constant DNAs of appointments.
***NB: We welcome feedback on our services and how to improve them but if you want to email us via the website about something you are not happy about and state that you do NOT want to be contacted then your points will be taken on board but you will not be able to be informed of the outcome of your email!
