Missed Appointments at the Practice
Our Practice has an ever increasing amount of patients who fail to attend their appointments and who fail to contact the surgery in advance to cancel.
Due to the number of patients failing to attend appointments, it may be that you are not able to see the doctor on the day that you wish to.
Effects On the Practice
- An increase in waiting time for appointments
- Frustration on both staff and patients
- A waste of resources
- A potential risk to health of the patient
