SMS text messaging enables us to send reminders for appointments, normal test results and other non-clinical messages.
Information sent via text messaging will be generic. No information which identifies an individual patient such as name, address or other items of personal detail will be sent within a text message. In addition, information within the text message will be kept to a minimum.
We will automatically send out appointment reminders, flu vaccination reminders and also inform patients of missed appointments.
If you do not wish to use this service, please inform a member of the reception team, we will record “informed dissent” on your records.
