Our policy for failed or cancelled appointments is as follows:
We strive to accommodate the appointment needs of our patients, and make every effort to ensure appointments take place on time.
Failure to provide us with at least 48 hours’ advance notice, or failure to present for a scheduled appointment will result in a cancellation or failed to attend fee.
It is understandable that sometimes cancellations cannot be helped due to illness or emergencies and we will take all valid circumstances into account.
Our goal in communicating our cancellation and failed to attend policy is to avoid any extra charges being passed on to the patient.
We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
A notice to new patients:
Due to several missed appointments by new patients who require emergency treatment, the practice will now take a £25.00 non-refundable deposit over the phone before new patients attend the practice.
The deposit will be deducted from the total of the first appointment.
