Appointment Text Reminders and general health care information.
You can register to receive information by text message on your phone regarding appointments and health care. As well as receiving reminders for appointments, if you need to cancel the appointment you can now reply to the reminder text with the word CANCEL. This will automatically cancel your appointment and send you a confirmation text that the appointment has been cancelled.
We can send text reminders to parents/guardians of children up to the age of 11 years. Once a child reaches the age of 11, by default any SMS messages will cease. If you wish to receive SMS reminders for children aged 11 - 15years old, you will need to make a special request via the reception team. Any application received will be considered by the child's usual doctor on a case-by-case basis. Children aged 16 - 18 years can opt to have messages sent to their own mobile telephone number.
If you wish to register for this messaging service please fill out the consent form.
An alternative to receiving messages by SMS text is also available, using the MJOG Messenger. For more information, and to download the phone app for free, visit the MJOG Messenger website.
