SMS Texting Alerts Service
The Practice has introduced a texting service. A text is sent to patients to confirm their appointment details and a further text is sent the day before the appointment to remind patients of the appointment. Please note that if you have provided the practice with your mobile contact number we will "presume consent" to this service unless you tell us otherwise.
Further if you have recorded your mobile number on your child's records it is your responsibility to discuss with your child if you wish to update the mobile contact number to that of your child's mobile, once they are at an age (14-18yrs) whereby they may start to attend/make their own appointments.
This service may be expanded in the future to send messages to advise you of any action following an investigation. Eg; to make a follow up appointment following a blood test/x-ray etc.
PLEASE NOTE IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE WE ARE UPDATED OF ANY CHANGE OF MOBILE NUMBERS.
