Our cancellation and fail to attend policy
We have been experiencing a large increase in clients failing to attend appointments over recent months. Each fail to attend means there is another patient who could have been seen sooner who needed our help. We have had to implement a cancellation and fail to attend policy. This means that you need to contact us before we close the day preceding your appointment if you wish to reschedule. Any failures to attend will incur certain fees. Thank you for your understanding.
In light of emerging concerns regarding the incidence of Brucella canis in imported dogs, we have amended our policy for registering such animals as patients of this practice. With effect from 7 December 2022, we will require sight of a negative test result for each animal, obtained through our practice or privately sourced through an accredited laboratory, dated 3 months after the dog arrived in the UK. We reserve the right to refuse registration of any animal that we perceive presents a risk to our patients, clients and staff. This does not affect emergency care. Further information about Brucella canis and the risks associated with it can be found at PHE Brucella canis statement or HSA Brucella canis guidance.
