In August 2023, we had 128 appointments that were not attended. 93.1% of patients attended their booked appointments. Appointments are at a premium and missed appointments could have been used by another patient if we are given adequate notice that the appointment was no longer required. If you need to cancel your appointment, you can call us on 01204 523716, text CANCEL back to your reminder text or visit the practice in person. This help us to maximise appointment availability in the future. 

The practice takes staff and patient safety very seriously. Any behaviour deemed unacceptable according to latest NHS England guidance, may lead to you being removed from the practice list.
