Appointments not Attended
We would like to remind the 213 patients who booked an appointment to be seen in June 2017 but failed to either attend the appointment or cancel it, that they can contact us on 02920 353020 to cancel their appointment. 20 patients missed appointments last week.
Patients who miss appointments increase the time it takes for all of our patients to book a routine appointment as they usually rebook the missed appointment.
Patients who persistently miss appointments, without a valid reason, will be asked to register with a different doctor’s surgery.
Nexplanon Implant Clinic
We are now providing Nexplanon (Implants) to patients of City Road, Roathwell & Albany Road surgeries as well as our own patients, and accept self-referrals. Please see link below for a self-referral form.
We would like to advise all patients that this service is available on Tuesday afternoons. For further information and to book an initial consultation to have an Implant (Nexplanon) please enquire at reception or ring 02920 353020 to book an appointment.
