SMS text messages/email reminders
Due to the changes to the Data Protection Act, we will no longer be able to send you text messages or emails without your written consent from May 2018.
You can do this in the following ways:
- Electronically via SystmOnline by Allowing SMS notifications under the Change Contact Details option. Please click on this link to log into SystmOnline.
(If you would like an account for SystmOnline, please contact the Reception)
- In writing giving your consent, outlining your name, address, date of birth and your signature.
Using SMS text messages/email is a very quick efficient and environmentally friendly way for us to contact patients regarding important reminders about upcoming appointments, clinic dates and other health related information.
It is also very important that we have your up to date contact information.
Please be assured that we will not share your contact details or personal information with any third parties
If you do not wish to be contacted by SMS/email please let us know and we will update your record accordingly. This again can be done online or in writing.
Remember you can change your mind regarding this at any time and as many times as you like.
