Rethinking Did Not Attend
Rethinking DNA is a two-minute animation and was created to encourage practitioners to identify children as ‘Was Not Brought’ instead of ‘Did Not Attend’ when they miss appointments. Although aimed at medical professionals, this principle applies for all appointments, including attendance at school.
NHS Nottingham City CCG have commissioned a video animation called Missing Appointments Matter which is aimed at raising awareness about the consequences of missing appointments and to ensure that children and adults get the medical care that they need. A subtitled version of the video is also available here.
The animation is a follow-on from the ‘Rethinking Did Not Attend’ video which acted as a powerful reminder that children do not take themselves to appointments, and for practitioners to reflect on the impact of missed appointments on a child’s wellbeing.
