The Practice has now installed SMS Text Messaging software to improve communication with our patients. Patients who have provided us with their mobile phone number will now receive a text message direct to their mobile in order to remind them should they have an appointment booked to see a Doctor/Nurse.
We are also entering patients email addresses onto the system in readiness for offering patients the option of ordering Repeat Prescriptions via email in the future if they so wish.
By implementing the above options we hope to reduce our use of paper, thus becoming a more environmentally friendly practice.
If you have a mobile and would like to take advantage of this service please fill in your details on the forms provided and hand in at reception.
We thank you for your co-operation and we hope this will enable us to provide our patients with a better service.
Under 16's please note
Our appointment messaging system is now in place. We hope to use this to keep you informed of any upcoming campaigns and for advice too.
Please be aware on giving your mobile phone number for other members of your family, our system will generate a text message reminder for all sharing members.
On your child reaching the age of 16 years you need to provide us with an alternative number. Your child is now considered an adult and they must provide their own contact number.
