New Text Message Service

 

 

 

 

The Longhouse Surgery is introducing a text message reminder service for patients with registered mobile phone numbers. With your consent, we can contact you via text message regarding your appointments, test results and other more general information about our services.

 

If you consent, your mobile phone number will be registered in your medical record on our computer system. If you change your mobile number, or pass on your phone to another person, please update us with your new contact details. It will remain your responsibility to do this. If this is not updated, there is a risk information will be passed to the wrong person.

 

You may withdraw consent at any time by notifying the practice.

 

Some older children may wish to change consent for this service to their own mobile phone numbers. Legally, patients aged 12 or over may provide their own numbers for this service. In this instance they should contact the practice to update their contact details. Children under 12 years of age living at the same address as their responsible adult may have the reminders sent to the number of the responsible adult if requested.

 

Please collect a consent form from Reception or let us know when you call that you are happy to go ahead

Goodbye Dr. George

Appointment Length

Our appointment slots are 10 minutes long. As you can imagine it is difficult to squeeze everything into this timeframe and as a result we sometimes run late. It would be very helpful if you could as much as possible try to discuss only one or two problems per appointment; if you do come with a list of problems please do not be offended if your Doctor asks you to make a second appointment to finish discussing them. This is so that we can give each problem the attention needed to deal with it properly.
