Text Messaging Service - Does the Surgery have your current mobile number?
The practice is delighted to announce a new text messaging service using a piece of software called MJOG. We need your consent to send text messaging for the purpose of health care and appointment reminders.
Text messages are generated using a secure facility, however I understand that they are transmitted over a public network onto a personal telephone and as such may not be secure, however the practice will not transmit any information which would enable an individual patient to be identified.
Are your contact details up-to-date?
It is therefore vital that you inform the surgery of your mobile phone number. If you do not wish to receive these text messages in the future, the service allows the simple opt out by texting 'STOP' to the surgery or alternatively just let us know at reception and we will do the rest.
