CANCELLATION POLICY

The Practice has a general policy for missed and late cancelled appointments, which is outlined below.  In some instances, individual practitioners implement their own cancellation policy and fees which may be different.

GENERAL CANCELLATION POLICY

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

All missed appointments and those re-scheduled or cancelled with less than one full working day’s notice will be subject to a charge of 50% of the appointment fee. If we are able to fill a late-cancelled/re-scheduled appointment this charge will be waived.

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

Fees for missed or late-cancelled appointments need to be settled immediately or when attending your next appointment. If the charge remains outstanding beyond four weeks, further appointments may not be booked until the account is cleared.

In situations of persistent non-attendance, we reserve the right to charge the full fee for any missed/late-cancelled appointments. We may also require pre-payment for future bookings.

APPOINTMENT REMINDERS

The practice has an automated system which sends FREE appointment reminder text messages to patients 2-3 days before their booked appointment; giving ample opportunity to cancel or re-schedule without penalty.  Please ensure that we have your current mobile phone number. Ultimately, it is the patient’s responsibility to remember to attend booked appointments, whether or not this text message is received.
