2017 Did Not Attend Figures

Dated: 9-May-17

Most of our patients know it can sometimes be difficult to get a routine appointment with a GP or Nurse.

One thing that makes this more difficult to overcome is the problem of missed routine appointments – Did Not Attend - DNA’s.

Where Patients have been declined routine appointments because the consultations are fully booked, it is at best disappointing when one of those booked appointments does not turn up and has not contacted the Practice to cancel the appointment so that it can be released for others.

Below are the DNA figures for Hungerford Surgery for the last few months.

MonthNumber of appointments missed
February 201786 Appointments, which equates to 21 hours of clinical time
March 201792 Appointments, which equates to 19.5 hours of clinical time
April 201772 Appointments, which equates to 13 hours of clinical time

Please let us know as quickly as possible if you can’t make your appointment.
