A standard 10 min slot is to allow the GP’s to address one problem. If you have more than one issue please ask to have a double appointment when booking. This will go towards stopping the surgeries running as late as they currently seem to be.
We would also appreciate you cancelling an appointment within a minimum of a 2 hour period instead of not attending resulting in being marked as a did not attend. This would result in a letter advising of the DNA, which can prompt removal from the practice list if you have 3 in one year. There is always somebody grateful for a last minute available appointment.
We appreciate everybody’s co-operation with this, as many have found appointments are currently in high demand.
