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.


If you would like to be included in the process then please either click the link below to read our conditions and download our consent form or call into the Surgery and speak to one of our Reception Team.
