You may have noticed that we are encouraging you to let us have your up to date mobile number. This is to facilitate you receiving automatic text messages reminding you of your appointments. We are able to then also contact you via (our free) text messaging service. For us, it is a quick and cost-effective way of communicating information to large groups of patients and is therefore, a good use of our staff and financial resources. If, however, you prefer not to be contacted by text message, please let reception know and we will opt you out of this service. Please note, however, that you will not then receive appointment reminders and will not be advised about any health campaigns or other services we may provide.
