Text Message Reminders

Did you know that the surgery can text you a free appointment reminder 2 days before your appointment is due?

The surgery has recently teamed up with iPlato to offer all our patients this service free of charge.  Using the NHS text messaging facility the system links with our iplato_logoclinical system to send text messages based on our next days appointments.  If you would like to take advantage of this system you just need to drop in your mobile number and we will do the rest.

Since the introduction of the text messaging reminder system the surgery has seen a dramatic decrease in the number of appointments missed without reason and many of our patients have commented how useful the system is.

Alternatively if you would prefer not to receive text message reminders then you can opt out of the service by informing our support team.


Did You Know You Can Also Text Us On 07780793149!

As well as as our outgoing text message system, patients can also text us on Blue_Mobile07780793149.  Patients can text us anything from appointment bookings / cancellations, prescription requests, medical queries or anything else for that matter!

Patients will receive an aknowledgement text message within 24 hours.

Please note that this number is unable to receive incoming calls, if you need to speak to us please contact us on 0161 654 4103.
