Most people make a careful note of their appointments, and then cancel them if they find that they no longer need or have to rearrange them. This is really helpful, as we can then make efficient use of our appointments, and give as many patients as possible what they want. We have made it easy to cancel your appointment by providing a 24 hour voicemail message service (01270 275199), so just leave a message any time of the day or night and please give us as much notice as possible (cancelling with 10 minutes’ notice doesn’t really help us at all).
