Patients Who Fail To Attend Appointments
Owing to the number of patients failing to cancel their appointment with Doctors, Nurses, Health Care Assistants and the Phlebotomist the Practice is introducing a policy whereby patients who have failed to attend two appointments within a rolling year will receive a letter notifying them that they will be removed from the Practice list if they fail to attend again.
Failure to attend appointments wastes precious clinical time, wastes tax payers money and stops other patients being able to access clinicians.
If you fail to attend a Travel Vaccination appointment with a Practice Nurse you will be unable to make a subsequent appointment with this Practice for Travel purposes within the next 6 months.
Asthma patients who fail to attend their Asthma review appointments with the Practice Nurse will not be able to request repeat medication until they have been seen by the Nurse.
It is unfortunate that we have to take these measures but we have many patients who fail to attend their appointments thus wasting precious nursing time.
Thank you for your co-operation.
