WONDERING WHY YOU HAVE TO WAIT LONGER FOR ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS?
Patients’ not attending is becoming a chronic problem!
In February 2020 164 appointment slots were wasted due to patients not attending.
If you received a text to remind you of your appointment and you can no longer attend please reply to the text to cancel the appointment.
Please cancel your appointments if no longer required, someone else could use the appointment.
