Appointments Notification Via SMS

We are introducing an SMS text messaging service for appointment notifications

SMS Messaging

We are always looking at ways to improve our communication to patients, so we are now offering a SMS messaging service for appointment reminders.

Care will be taken to ensure that no personal information is released using this service and the practice will continue to observe the strictest controls with regard to holding your personal information in confidence.

Initially, an SMS text message will be sent containing your appointment details once you have booked an appointment. A further message will be sent 48 hours before the appointment is due as a reminder.

In the future, we will be looking to introduce a more interactive form of SMS text messaging which will allow you to cancel your appointment by text if you are no longer able to attend. This facility will allow us to send you health promotion initiatives such as flu jabs and NHS Health Check invitations.

If you have a mobile phone, are over 16 and would like to receive SMS text messages then please complete the slip below.

You may withdraw your consent at any time by notifying reception either verbally or in writing.
