The Emergency Department (known as A&E) is for life-threatening accidents and emergencies only. Before you go there, ask yourself, is it a real emergency? If not, there are other local health services that can provide you with the right help and care you need. Use this site to find the best health services for you, your family and friends.
TEXT MESSAGING APPOINTMENT REMINDERS
The practice has recently utilised the facility to send text message reminders to patients who have booked appointments at the surgery, or informing you of your named GP.
It is important for patients to ensure that the practice has an up to date mobile number for each family member. We have experienced an issue recently whereby appointment reminders are being sent to other family members, as several patients have the same mobile number on their records. We are concerned that this could be a confidentiality issue.
If you receive an appointment text message reminder that is not related to you, could you please contact reception and advise them of your correct mobile number. Thank you.
