DNA APPOINTMENTS 15-08-2016 TO 19-08-2016
Last week there were 56 DNA appointments from both GP and Nurses clinics. This equals to 9 Hours and 20 minutes wasted. We do send text message reminders for appointments, you can reply to this message and cancel your appointment if you wont be able to make it. You can cancel an appointment up to 30 minutes before your appointment. Please ensure the practice has a current mobile number on your record so you will receive these messages in the future.
We are working hard to reduce the number of DNA appointments. From the 1st June 2016 If the patient DNA's an appointment it is recorded on the medical record. In the instance of a 2nd DNA the patient will be sent a letter informing that the practice are aware of the DNA and on the 3rd occasion patient will be sent a warning letter to inform them that they will be removed from the practice list.
NEW TELEPHONE SYSTEM IN PROGRESS
Please note that the practice is in progress with switching to a new telephone system.
FROM THE 1st APRIL 2016:
From the 1st April 2016 any copies of results, immunisations and documents will have a charge of 5p per sheet to avoid these charges you can ask for a patient access pin. Click here for more information.
