The Fountain Medical Centre would like to offer you the ability to receive text message reminders for your appointments booked at the surgery and to send other health information out by SMS, such as, letting you know that your results are back, or that we need to get in touch with you. We might also occasionally send information about special clinics we are running that you might be interested in, in the hope that this will make things easier.
Our text message service allows you to cancel appointments and respond to routine health questions.
Messages are generated by an NHS Secure Service however they are transmitted over a public network to a personal phone.
The practice will never transmit any information that would enable an individual patient to be identified, or specifically which tests they have had.
