Noticeboard

SAMs now has the capability to accept card payments where payment is required for any additional services. Over the next 2 months we will be phasing out accepting cheques and cash.


The July  DNA are disappointing! The number of patients who DNA has remained unchanged this month to GP 22 appointments (3.6 hours - down 3 hours), Nurse Practioner 12 appointments (2 hours - no change), Nurse 30 appointments (7.6 hours - up 1.2 hours) and HCA 51 appointments (8.5 hours - up 2 hours). This means wasted appointments equivalent to almost 3 full days of clinical time lost, less availability for other patients and poor use of clinical staff time.
