Last month (May) we have had an extremely high demand for emergency on the day appointments - 221. However, we have also had 70 GP appointments which were not attended.
These appointments could have been offered to patients with genuine health problems and could of meant a delay in treatment.
Could all patients please ensure that they cancel/re-arrange appointments appropriately by contacting either surgery as soon as possible. Appointments can also be cancelled using the online system.
