Missed appointments


31,000 missed GP Practice appointments across Wiltshire in five months

An equivalent of 1,033 days of general practitioner time was lost during July – November 2016 because more than 31,000 GP, nurse and healthcare assistant appointments were missed across Wiltshire’s 55 GP Practices.

We’re urging patients to take a few minutes to cancel their appointments if they are no longer required, or if they are unable to attend. Practices will then be able to offer those slots to other patients who require them and help to reduce appointment waiting times.
