Text messages consent

mobile phone

We are currently in the process of promoting the use of text Messaging as an alternative method to conventional post.

We are asking patients to provide two levels of consent to messaging.

Appointment Information

This is usually in the form of appointment reminders. 1 day before your appointment with the Doctor or Nurse, the appointment system will send you an appointment reminder.

If you are happy for this to happen, please inform a member of staff or please fill out the consent form.

Additional information

We are also asking patients to provide consent to receive additional information via text or email. This additional information may be the outcome from your recent tests, requests for you to book a follow-up appointment, advice on further treatment or notifying you may need a prescription etc.

Again we are asking patients to provide express consent, without it we will send you this information by a traditional post methods.

If you wish to consent please inform a member of staff or the GP at your next visit.
