doctors appointments

I accompanied my mother to our local surgery today in order to have her blood pressure checked. Waiting, I spotted a large noticeboard. During the month of September, 285 patients missed their appointments, leaving doctors twiddling their thumbs. I think that’s bloody outrageous, particularly when other patients can’t get appointments! Perhaps if patients were charged for failing to show up at the appointed time, they might learn common courtesy?
