TEXT MESSAGE APPOINTMENT REMINDERS
We offer text messages for appointment reminders and test results! This means that when your results are back and reviewed by a Doctor you will be sent a text message telling you your results and any message the Doctor wants to send you. We also send reminders for appointments you have booked with us. Please ensure we have your correct mobile number!
New Data Protection Regulations from May 2018 (GDPR)
Under the new data protection regulations introduced from 25th May 2018, we will continue to contact patients via text messages regarding the delivery of care if they have provided consent to do so.
If practices are sending messages about recommended treatment for the management of a specific health issue, then this is defined as providing appropriate care for patients, not marketing purposes.
If you would like to opt out of any future contact via text messaging, then please contact Reception.
