Please Help us to help you - Don't be a DNA!
A DNA is someone who Did Not Attend an appointment at the Surgery and did not tell us beforehand. The Doctor or Nurse were waiting, but the patient did not turn up.
At this Practice, since April 1st 2017 - 991 patients DNA'd appointments, the equivalent of over 165 hours of clinician time. Not only is this a waste of valuable administrative resources, it also means the number of appointments available for patients is reduced by each DNA that occurs.
During the month of October 2017 - 162 patients DNA'd appointments.
19 patients DNA'd an appointment twice!
162 is equivalent to 5.6 days of appointments.
During the month of November 2017 - 151 patients DNA'd appointments.
9 patients DNA'd appointments twice, 1 patient DNA'd 3 appointments and 1 patient DNA'd 4 appointments.
151 is equivalent to 5.2 days of appointments.
On average we are losing 1 weeks worth of appointments per month due to DNA's
If you book an appointment and later find you cannot make it, please telephone and cancel so that we can offer the next patient this appointment.
