Text message appointment reminders are back!

We are delighted to be able to tell you that text message appointment reminders are back!

From the 1st April 2018, you will once again have access to this popular service that sends a gentle reminder about your next booked appointment and  gives you the option to cancel by responding directly to the message; on average,  94 appointments are wasted each week by patients who fail to turn up for their appointment.

Between now and April, we will be sending out a series of welcome messages to patients who have mobile numbers on their record; if you’d rather not receive messages from us, don’t worry, just let us know and we can opt you out of this service.

Once the system is up and running, we can start to share health information, send you reminders about services that we offer, and give you the opportunity to tell us what you think about your experience with us.

Keep an eye out for your welcome message.
