Appointment Cancellations

Dear patients,

To try and reduce patient DNA's (Did not attend) we have added another option to our phons. (Option 6) where patients can leave a message to cancel an appointment so they do not have to wait in the phone que.

The practice has a DNA policy in place which, for patients who repeatedly fail to attend 3 appointments in a 12 months period, will results in being removed from the practice list. Appointments at Oaklands are at a premium and missed appointments can be used by another patient if we are provided with at least an hours' notice that the appointment is no longer required.

Please help us to maximise appointment availability in the future, your cooperation is very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

All the Oaklands team
