We have now introduced a text messaging service to the practice, which we are using to remind you of upcoming appointments, as well as to invite you to attend clinics such as flu vaccination clinics, provide smoking cessation advice, and any other information we hope you will find useful.
We hope you will find this to be a very useful and helpful service, particularly the appointment reminder text which allows you to cancel your appointment at the touch of a button. This in turn frees up otherwise wasted appointments for other patients and allows us to build on our already good access to appointments.
For this reason, we will be asking everyone who contacts the practice either in person or by telephone for an up to date mobile telephone number so that we can update our database. If you would like to start receiving appointment remidners please make sure we have a current mobile number we can use to contact you. You can call us on 0141 531 9500 or you can use this form to update your details by clicking on Change of Phone Number.
Over 400 of the mobile numbers we have on file no longer work and so the text messages cannot be delivered, and over 1000 of our patients we do not have a number for.
Thank you for your help and support.
