Text Appointment Reminders
We offer patients with a mobile telephone a free appointment reminder service.
Two days before your appointment you will receive a text message telling you of the date and time of your appointment, and who it is with.
We are now also able to confirm your newly made appointment by text. This should be received a few minutes after you make the appointment and can be checked to ensure the appointment details are correct.
You must consent to receive these free services.
If your mobile number is shared with other family members (over 13 years old), we are unable to send appointment reminders, as this would breach confidentiality rules. However, if you contact reception and can provide consent for each of the family members who use the same mobile number we can reinstate the service.
Alternatively, register another mobile number for the other family members.
If you wish to register for this service please contact the practice.
