Text Message Reminders

We routinely send text reminders to patients for whom we have a contact number, the day before any future booked appointments.

If you wish to register for this service please fill out the consent form below.

If you do not wish us to send you these reminders please contact the surgery and let us know.

Non-urgent advice: Please Note

It is not possible for us to send reminders in respect of your repeat prescriptions.

SMS / Text Message Consent


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.
