As you may already be aware the practice is now able to provide SMS text messages confirming appointment details. We have also moved to a new system which enables the practice to contact patients by text and email for non-urgent matters such as health promotion campaigns, repeat prescriptions and referrals. This will enable patients to be contacted quicker than the traditional route of posting a letter as well as being more environmentally friendly.
In order to benefit from this new service, we require consent from you to receive text messages and email and also need to ensure that the contact details we have on record for you are correct. A Patient Communication Consent Form can be downloaded or collected from either of the practice sites.
