From the 1st August we will be using SMS text messaging to send confirmation and reminders for your appointments.
In August, when you make an appointment, our computer system will automatically send you a text that will redirect you to a web browser on your smart phone (make sure that it is connected to the internet!). Here you will confirm your date of birth and your mobile number to make sure we have the right information.
If you do not have a smart phone, then you can logon to the internet on your home pc with the web address that is in the text message and confirm your date of birth and mobile here.
If you do not have access to a PC or a smart phone then please come into the surgery and we will help you here.
then Once this is confirmed, you will receive a text every time you make an appointment and also a reminder for your appointment two days before it is due.
If you do not want to receive text messages in this way then you can eiher inform us at reception or during the above process there is an opportunity to decline the service.
Your mobile number will not be shared with any third parties.
