As of the 25th May 2018 the UK data privacy law changes. The General Data Protection Regulations, known as GDPR, is a really positive step towards having more control over how your data is used and how you are contacted.
As a result of these changes we now need to seek written consent on how you would prefer to be contacted. Any consent to text messaging that we already held has now been removed.
We now require you to complete a form to record your consent or dissent to receiving text messages. These are available from reception or online.

If you agree to sign up to receive text messaging, please be aware this will be our first line of contact to you and will be used for appointment confirmations, appointment reminders, general practice updates, any reminders you are due, any general enquiries, health promotion and to alert you if we need you to contact us.
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not give your consent for us to contact you via your mobile number, you will not receive any text reminders for your appointments.
We do not add mobile numbers for children under the age of 16 on their records.
Please note that it is your responsibility to inform reception if you change your number. (If you fail to do so, messages will automatically be sent to the number you have provided).
