PATIENT MESSAGING SERVICE
We have introduced a new messaging system allowing patients to receive appointment reminders and messages relating to your personal medical care direct to your mobile phone. This includes invitations to specialist clinics (such as influenza vaccination clinics)
We do not undertake any form of marketing.
This is an automated system and we have sent out a text message to all our existing patients to obtain their consent. New patients will be asked for their consent on registering.
If you wish you can opt out of receiving text messages at any time. Please contact the surgery for further information or to update your contact details.
