As part of our increasing range of patient services, the practice will commence sending SMS appointment reminder texts out on 1st June 2016. Indeed, you may already have received an "introductory" message giving you the opportunity to "Opt-out" of receiving these messages if you don't want them.
We appreciate that many patients will already be receiving unsolicited SMS texts and would like to reassure you that we will only be sending you reminders about upcoming appointments and nothing else. We would also like to further reassure you that neither your mobile telephone number or in fact any other personal information will be passed to or shared with any other 3rd party.
If you have a mobile phone and would like to receive these reminders then please contact the surgery so that we can add it to your personal details. If we already have your number and you are not receiving these reminders than please contact the surgery to make sure we have the correct number.
You can of course "Opt-out" of receiving these messages at any time - just contact the surgery and let us know.
