Appointments - Keep it or cancel it!
"Keep it or cancel it! Don't waste it!" Have you ever wondered why it can be difficult to get an appointment with a GP/Nurse? Last month, 304 people failed to attend their booked appointment! This is equal to 50.5 hours of wasted appointments!!! This is such a waste of NHS time and appointments are in high demand. PLEASE...if you cannot make your appointment - cancel it!
