CANCELLATION POLICY

missed appointmentPlease give a minimum of one full working day’s notice if you need to cancel an appointment. This allows us to offer the appointment to others in need.

We appreciate that sometimes events develop which make it impossible for our patients to attend booked appointments at short notice.  If you find yourself in this situation, please make every effort to contact us – we often have patients in need, waiting for appointments to become available.

All missed appointments and those cancelled with less than one full working day’s notice will incur a charge – £20 in situations when the patient simply Fails to Attend (FTA), or £10 if we are notified of the cancellation. If we are able to fill a late-cancelled appointment the late cancellation charge will be waived.

We reserve the right to charge the full fee and/or require payment in full at the time of booking future appointments in situations where patients have poor attendance/payment  history. 

APPOINTMENT REMINDERS

The practice has an automated system where patients can opt in to appointment reminders, choosing either email or text reminders (or both!) 48 hrs before your appointment (giving ample opportunity to cancel or reschedule without penalty) and text messages 24 hours before your appointment. Please ensure that we have your correct email address and mobile number.

Ultimately, it is the patient’s responsibility to remember to attend booked appointments.
