Patient SMS Messaging Service (MJOG)
We are pleased to announce that a new patient SMS messaging service was installed at the Practice on Monday 19th June 2017. This automatically sends a text to our Patient's mobile number a week before the appointment and then a reminder the day before the appointment. This system also allows two way interactive communications between you and the Practice to make cancelling appointments easier.
We are also able to send targeted health information and questionnaires to individual patients, which will hopefully help them manage chronic long term conditions better and help us to keep medical records up to date and accurate.
This system enables us to send text message reminders to patients who have an appointment. The patient can then text back to cancel the appointment if they no longer need it. This should help enormously in cutting down on our wasted appointments each month.
**PLEASE MAKE SURE WE HAVE AN UP TO DATE MOBILE NUMBER FOR YOU**
If you wish to opt out of this service please ask for a form at Reception
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
There is easy access for the disabled to the surgery from the surgery car park, with consulting rooms and toilets on the ground floor.
There is a lift to the first floor.
