Repeat Medication – Answerphone Messages

News Posted in News

Text Messaging and our new GP App – organise your healthcare on the move!

New test messaging service and MyGP app

 

We have recently changed our text messaging service provider so you may notice that your text reminders are a little different, but hopefully not too different!  This new service not only provides patient text reminders and the ability to cancel appointments via text, but also a new ‘myGP’ app.  The app allows you to book, view available appointments and cancel appts on the move.  It will also direct you to Patient Access to order your repeat prescriptions when on the move.  One of the benefits of the app is that it enables parents of younger children to be able to create a ‘family’ and this will allow parents to book and cancel any of their children’s appointments.

You will find the link to the app here, why not sign up today:
