If you need to cancel your appointment we require 48 hours’ notice. We ask for all cancellations to be made in writing over email, in person or via our phone line, a voice message should the practice be closed is also acceptable.
For any private appointments giving less than 48 hours’ notice will result in a minimum charge of £50, although this can be higher depending on the complexity of the procedure which would have been already prepared for. For any NHS appointments giving less than 48 hours’ notice a ‘fail to attend’/FTA occurs, should any patient FTA 3 times or more they are removed from the NHS list.
For any patient wishing to dispute the policy due to a situation out of your control we request something is put in writing to the practice manager, Christina Fernandez: email@example.com, Weybridge dental practice 29 Dorchester Road Weybridge KT138PE
