WASTED NHS RESOURCES – Are you aware of the value / cost of services?

 Recently, a national newspaper stated that missed GP appointments cost the tax payer (you and me) £162 million and missed outpatient appointments cost £750 million a year.

 ‘’Did you know that when you miss an NHS appointment, it costs up to £160, where you failed to attend?’’

 ‘’Did you know that more than five million hospital outpatient appointments  are missed every year? – That equates to 1 in 10!’’
