NHS POLICY

Missed appointments are a considerable cost to the NHS and unfair to other patients who have been waiting several weeks for an appointment.

  • We require a minimum of 24 hours’ notice should you need to cancel or change an appointment. This can allow the appointment time to be used for another patient.
  • If you cancel two appointments with less than 24 hours’ notice, you will no longer be seen as an NHS patient. (Exceptions may be made for extenuating circumstances).
  • If you fail to attend two appointments, you will no longer be seen as an NHS patient.
