Reducing Did Not Attend (DNA) rates at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (ROH) started 2017 with a Did Not Attend (DNA) rate of 10.9%. Although below the national average, as a high performing specialist centre the Trust partnered with DrDoctor to improve this further by implementing Appointment Management.

Within nine weeks, the overall DNA rate was reduced to 7.1% (35% improvement) in the clinics where DrDoctor is turned on; the estimated 2019-2020 full year equivalent financial benefit for the Trust is over £100,000.
