If we have your mobile telephone number, you will receive a text confirming your appointment 1 week before your appointment time. You will also receive a reminder text 1 day before your appointment time. If you are unable to make this appointment you can reply with the word CANCEL - you will need to contact us or book online if you wish to re-arrange the time of your appointment. If you have a smart phone you can download a free app to make this easier. More information about the App can be found here.
We are also able to send other information to you by text such as reminders about your flu jab, to book a blood test and so on. We hope that you will find this helpful.
