Messages to patients using email and Text (SMS)

We have had a good response so far from patients who would be happy to receive electronic messages from us, but we would like to encourage more of you to consider this option. If you have any questions or concerns our Receptionists should be able to help you.

With your consent we can now arrange to contact you via email or Text Message (SMS) we will only text or email you with messages that are relevant to your ongoing health care e.g. appointment confirmation and reminders, test results, health screening opportunities etc.

We respect your privacy and will only contact you in this way if you give us your permission. If you would like to receive messages from us via email or text (SMS) you will need to complete a consent from so that we can record your agreement on your patient record.

To take advantage of this service, please contact the surgery to complete a consent form. Forms are available on the Reception & Prescription desks, in the Branch Surgeries and also on our website.
