SMS Text Messaging


The Practice is introducing the use of text messaging as another form of communication.


SMS Text messaging is now a well-used method of communication, and the practice feels that embracing this method will enhance the service we offer to our patients by engaging with them in a more efficient and accessible way. Our aim is to benefit both the practice and patients in delivering our services more effectively.


This will allow the practice to send out information such as appointment reminders, recalls in relation to health reviews, flu campaigns, pathology results and more.
