SMS/Text/Email Service

We contact patients for a number of reasons related to their health needs. Much of the contact is by telephone and it is important that you update us when changing land line numbers and/or mobile numbers. We also use text and email as well as the post. Our preference is to use text or email as it is a quick and cost effective method of communication to use.

We do need to have your consent to contact you by text or email. Most contact is made by SMS text.
