Missed appointments cost St George's University Hospitals millions

Postby Community Editor » Thu Sep 20, 2018 11:30 am

Data from NHS England shows that, between January and June, 38,971 people either did not show up for an outpatient appointment at the trust, or arrived too late to be seen.

The average outpatient appointment costs the NHS £120, according to the latest resources cost data. This means that the 38,971 missed sessions cost St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust around £4.68 million.
