We want to improve the way we communicate with patients. Some of you are already receiving text message reminders for appointments. We want to widen the number of patients benefiting from this service and we want to use the service for more than just appointment reminders. For example, we might text you to let you know when a prescription is ready to collect or to ask you to come for your annual review.
From March, if we’ve got your mobile number, we’ll include you in this service unless you’ve opted out. Please let us know if you wouldn’t like to be part of this service and please make sure you inform us if your number changes.
