Text Reminder Service

MobileText Reminders

On average we have about 30 lost appointments every week where patients do not turn up and do not cancel.  That is the equivalent of two morning surgeries.  We realise that it can be easy to forget an appointment so why dont you make use of our free, automatic text reminder service.  This will send a text to your mobile about 48 hours before your appointment reminding you.  If you cant make the appointment just send the free text CANCEL in reply and we will be able to issue the appointment to someone else.

To sign up for this service please fill in the form below or contact reception.

I consent to the practice contacting me by text message and/or email for the purposes of health promotion, practice news and for appointment reminders.

I acknowledge that appointment reminders by text are an additional service and that they may not be sent on all occasions but that the responsibility for attending appointments or cancelling them still rests with me. I can cancel the text message facility at any time.

Text messages are generated using a secure facility but I understand that they are transmitted over a public network onto a personal telephone and as such may not be secure, however the practice will not transmit any information which would enable an individual patient to be identified.
