3 Reasons Not To Miss Your Appointment

Posted on:

  1. Help other patients. – If you book an appointment but don’t attend, another patient will miss out!
  2. Reduce our workload. – Failure to attend or cancel an appointment increases administrative work.
  3. Save the NHS money. – According to Government data, a GP appointment costs up to £50. Missed appointments waste money that you have invested in the NHS.

How Can you Help?

  1. Encourage family members and friends to attend or cancel their appointment.
  2. Write down your appointment and/or add to your phone calendar. Even better, set a reminder.
  3. Always cancel unwanted appointments, no matter how late in the day.
