Leybourne Urgent Care Project

tenner.jpg

During the last 12 months £1,771 was spent on 25 Leybourne practice patients who attended the local Accident and Emergency Department, but who chose to leave before receiving treatment or having refused treatment.

2 patients attended twice in just 12 months and chose to leave before receiving / refused treatment.

This behaviour can result in reduced funding for your GP practice to provide your primary care needs.

Do you know that when people attend A&E, book in and then because there is a wait to be seen, they leave – THERE IS STILL A COST.  The basic cost is £56 per visit.

We will be writing to patients who abuse the A&E department in an attempt to influence this unacceptable behaviour. Please help us with your support of this initiative.

Please save A&E for when you need it
