Free Text Message Appointment Reminders / SMS Messages

To receive text message reminders of your appointment direct to your mobile phone, please hand in your mobile number to the reception desk.

You will also be eligible to receive via text message, relevant health information from your GP. Your information will not be disclosed to any third party and will be used by your healthcare professional only.

Please note this is not a premium rate service. There is no charge to you the patient for text messages sent to your mobile from the surgery.

If you choose to reply to a text message sent to you by the surgery then you will be charged the standard SMS cost depending on your network.

If you wish to stop receiving text messages from the surgery at any point, please contact the surgery to opt-out.

The practice is currently trialling some software that allows us to send sms messages to registered patients. They will usually be for appointment reminders or to advise you that you may need an annual review or a test to be repeated.

Please ensure that you inform the practice if you change your mobile (or home) telephone number.
