We now send SMS text messages for appointment reminders and healthcare information. Text messages are generated using a secure facility but you must understand that they are transmitted over a public network onto a personal telephone and as such may not be secure, however the Practice will not transmit any information which would enable an individual patient to be identified. Be aware if more than one family member uses the same mobile number the messages we send are patient specific. Let us know if you do not want to receive text messages.
Once we have your mobile number on record, SMS text messages will automatically be switch on – check with reception team that we have the correct contact numbers for you.
Don’t forget to let us now if you change your mobile number.
