Patient Text Messaging Service

The practice would like to offer patients the opportunity to register for our text messaging service. This would be used for health promotion, to invite patients to our Nurse led clinics and Flu clinics and for appointment reminders. Please note that the phone number that sends these texts cannot receive calls or incoming texts (aside from the unique code generated for appointment cancellations/clinic invitations).

If you would like to register for this service, please complete and return the consent form which you can download from the link below or collect from the reception desk. 

(Please note if you are printing the form off from the link below that we require the 2nd page 'for practice use' to be included when returning the form.) 

Patient Consent Form

Cancellations

On average, 374 patients per month fail to attend their appointment with the doctor or nurse. Users registered for the text messaging service can cancel their appointment by replying to their reminder text with a unique code.
