GP appointment? Don’t need it? Cancel it! Posted on 27 Jul 2018

Don’t forget..

Forgetting to cancel your unwanted GP appointment can prevent someone else from being seen – and in just six months last year, over 100,000 appointments were missed.  If more people cancel their appointments when they don’t need them, we’ll reduce the number of no-shows and therefore improve GP access for patients and make better use of clinicians’ time.
So if you can’t make it, just let your doctor know – it’s as simple as that.

Three easy things you can do to help:

1. Cancel your appointment by giving your GP practice a call or by visiting their website.
2. Make sure all your details are up-to-date next time you visit your GP – that way they can send you text/email reminders.
3. Put the date in the diary or an alert in your phone so you definitely won’t forget!
