Did Not Attend

Non-attendance of appointments costs the NHS thousands of working hours each week. In August 2019, Holt Medical Practice offered:

2964 GP appointments

2969 Nurse appointments

Thank you to everyone who promptly attended their appointments.

Unfortunately, 214 patients failed to turn up for their appointments and gave us no prior notice. This amounted to 51 hours 9 minutes of wasted clinical time!

Please let us know in advance of your appointment if you know you are not going to be able to make it so we can reallocate these appointments to patients who need them.

If you receive text message reminders, you can cancel at any time of day or night by replying with the word CANCEL. Appointments can also be cancelled using our online cancellation form.
