Text message reminders and cancellations
You can opt-in to receive appointment notifications and reminders by text if you have a mobile phone number.
You will also be able to cancel your appointment via text message.
Please note: the text messaging service is an automated service and is NOT manned by a member of staff.
If you wish to cancel your appointment, please text the word CANCEL only. The message will fail if you start your text with any other word eg. ‘please cancel’.
Ensure you cancel your appointment no later than 30 minutes before the appointment time. The system may not cancel the appointment if you do not allow this amount of time. If you wish to cancel your appointment after this time, please telephone the surgery.
Please ensure that your personal details are kept up to date for our records. If any of your details change please tell us straightaway, as we may need to contact you urgently.
