Noticeboard

Apr-17: 252 people failed to attend their GP/nurse appointment!  This is equal to 42 hours of wasted appointments!  

With increased demand for GP and nursing services and very little extra funding to facilitate this rise, reducing the DNA (did not attend) rate could make a significant difference to appointment availability.  PLEASE...if you cannot make your appointment, let us know ASAP so we can offer it to someone else.
