Did you know.....between 10 and 14 million GP appointments are missed every single year. This has a significant impact on practices and patients as every missed appointment is a wasted opportunity, as another patient could have been seen, if the appointment had been cancelled in advance.
What is the impact at Mandeville? The 9% of patients who did not attend equates to 284 missed appointments each month! In terms of hours, this equates to over 47 hours of wasted appointments. This is an alarming figure and will explain why patients are finding it difficult to make an appointment.
What are we doing to reduce DNA's? We will continue to use MJog which is a smart messaging service, advising patients of their appointments the day before their appointemnt. If a patient is unable to attend then they can cancel, enabling this appointment to be offered to another patient who needs it.
What can our patients do to help? Let us know if you no longer need the appointment! Call us or cancel your appointment online; this will free up the appointment for your fellow patients.
Do we have your current number? MJog sends a text message, so it is imperative we have your correct contact details. Please do advised us at the earliest opportunity to any changes to your personal details (name, telephone numbers, address, email address).
