Please help us reduce waste !

Did you know that over 100 appointments are wasted per month because patients do not cancel unwanted appointments ? Please help by cancelling your appointment if it is no longer wanted. The NHS is not an endless resource and we urge you to look after what is available. 

We are working harder to help remind patients of appts where we can. Please do sign up to our text reminder service for appointments.
