Where were you? & Cancellations

Please keep your appointment to ensure you get the treatment you need. Missed appointments add to waiting times and cost the NHS millions of pounds each year. If you can’t make it, please let us know so that we can give your appointment to someone else and arrange a new time for you.

For more information on cancelling you appointment – visit our appointments and cancellations page.


North Devon District Hospital is a busy hospital which sees well over 50,000 emergency patients each year. On rare occasions, we have to cancel some of our planned patients because of emergencies.

We know how much stress this can cause, so we work very hard to ensure this is something we only do in exceptional circumstances. But if we do have to cancel your admission, please accept our apologies. We will rearrange your procedure date as soon as possible.
