It is important for all patients to attend all their scheduled appointments, so that I can monitor their clinical progress and side effects. Missed appointments mean I don’t have the opportunity to monitor you properly, which potentially endangers your welfare. I have set up an automated reminder system to help you remember your appointments. In the event that you are not able to attend your appointment, please give us one working day’s notice, so that we may fill your appointment time with someone else who needs to be monitored. The failure to give us this advanced notice will necessitate a charge for the missed appointment.
