13.5 million GP and 6.5 million practice nurse appointmtents are missed each year, wasting valuable funds and increase waiting times.
Over 80% forget or feel better.
To help reduce this figure, we are sending FREE appointment reminders via text message before your appointment detailing the date & time.
If you haven't yet received yours and would like to help us improve patient services, please provide your mobile number to reception staff. Thank you.
