Text message appointment reminders
If you have provided us with your mobile number, this will be stored on your medical records. When you make an appointment to be seen at the surgery, you will automatically be sent a text message to remind you to attend, although you can opt out of this if you advise us to do so. You will receive a text message at the time of booking your appointment and also two days before the date of your appointment.
In order for this to work efficiently, please ensure that you have provided us with your up-to-date mobile number and let us know if you change your number so that the text message will be sent to the correct person.
If in the last 21 days you have returned from Sierra Leone, Liberia or Guinea or any of the Ebola affected countries in West Africa, and you have any symptoms of the infection please do not visit the surgery. Please stay at home and phone the surgery to ask for advice or if the surgery is closed call 111 or 999, saying that you have recently returned from West Africa.
Symptoms include: Diarrhoea, vomitting, headache, rash, sore throat, chills or fever with temperature of 38 degrees or above.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription.
