If you have to cancel your appointment please give us as much notice as possible, at least 24 hours.
This enables us to make alternative arrangements. In case of your poor attendance history (failures to attend or late cancellations) no more appointments may be offered.
If you do not give adequate notice and fail to attend for an appointment, other patients are deprived from the care that could have been available to them, we reserve the right to remove the patients that waste our time and resources from the practice list.
In case of failing to attend your private treatment, the practice will charge £20.00 per 20 minutes, failed to attend fee to cover the time reserved for your treatment.
Further information on our failed appointment policy can be requested from the practice.
