DNA - Did not attend

Dont be a DNA - Did not attend

In just one year from 2015 there were 8,556 appointments at Limehouse General practice, where patients simply failed to attend. This wasted 2,043 hours and 40 mins of clinical time and money.

That equates to 85 days of waste that could easily be avoided if patients inform us in advance that they would not be attending their appointment.

As a result of this we incur avoidable wastage of resources. The Practice has come to the decision from the 1st of June 2016 to review any DNA at the practice.

Please ensure that you call through to cancel any appointment well in advance or if you have booked online, you can cancel online.

By doing this we can keep waiting times down and offer you more appointments when you need them.

We hope you can support the practice in this initiative.
