Throughout February, a total of 58 appointments were left unattended. This equates to 910 minutes of wasted NHS time. Each 10 minute appointment costs the NHS, on average, £32. This means £2912 was wasted during November and December.
£2912 could fund treatment for almost 6 broken legs.
Please make sure to cancel appointments you can no longer attend. You can call the surgery to cancel, or reply to the SMS confirmation message you receive when booking the appointment. The amount of time wasted in February is less than previous months. Thank you for letting us know if you are unable to make an appointment.
