DID NOT ATTEND /CANCELLATION
The practice has a policy for patients who do not attend their appointments without letting us know beforehand. If you do not attend an appointment, this is logged as a DNA (Did not attend). If you cannot attend your appointments for any reason please let us know 24 hours in advance, we can then offer the appointment to someone else. If you DNA on 3 occasions or more we could decide to no longer treat you at this practice
Home visits are for people unable to attend the because of severe illness or disability; you should always try to attend surgery if it is at all possible, because in the time it takes to visit a patient at home a Doctor can see five or six people at the surgery. If you do need to be visited at home please telephone as early in the morning as possible, Ideally before 10.00AM. Small children can usually be brought to the surgery by car and this will enable the child to be seen more quickly than waiting for a visit - the Receptionists will always try to fit in an urgent case as quickly as possible.
