|Please arrive in good time for your appointment, if you are late this will cause a delay to both the clinician and other patients and could result in us having to re-schedule your appointment.|
|Please cancel your appointment if you are unable to attend, wasted appointments cost us time and are frustrating for other patients trying to book appointments. We have a strict DNA (Did not Attend) policy, details of which are displayed in the waiting room. You can cancel any unwanted appointments in person, telephone or online.|
|Please do not attend Urgent or Book on the Day appointments with non-urgent problems.|
|Please allow 48 hours for repeat prescriptions. Interruptions to the dispensary team for collection of non-urgent repeat prescriptions, that have been ordered on the same day, are disrupting to an already extremely busy team.|
|Please ensure we have your consent recorded in your medical records if you wish for someone else [ie spouse/family member/friend] to have access to your medical information, or collect your medication on your behalf.|
