Say I have cancelled an appointment, but I then decide that I would like to go after all, so I cancel the cancellation... Do I uncancel the appointment? Seems a bit clumsy even if it's a valid expression.

When I need to do this I call to rebook the appointment. That is the same as calling to reinstate the booking.

Alternatively, you can revoke, reverse, or undo the cancellation.

  • Thanks, I do like reinstate cancelled appointment, has a clarity about it

I agree. I like rebook. You could also say undo or reschedule, but the latter could also be inferred as you are scheduling for a different time.
