How to re-schedule or cancel an appointment

We are all busy people and sometimes, it is not always possible for you to get to an appointment we may have made with you.  If you are unable to attend for any reason, please tell us as soon as possible so your appointment can be given to another patient.  This improves our service for everyone.

We have a dedicated webpage through which you can tell us you wish to change your appointment time or cancel your appointment completely.  Please note you will require the details of your appointment to hand as there is specific information we will need to give us.
