Patient SMS Service (MJOG)

We are delighted to announce that MJOG is up and running. Patient Messaging Services is a mobile messaging service that sends automated text messages to patients’ mobiles and that allows two-way interactive communications between you and the practice.

We are able to send targeted health information and questionnaires to individual patients, which will hopefully help them to manage chronic long term conditions better, and keep medical records up to date and accurate. The system will also allow us to send appointment reminders to patients. When you receive this text, you are given the opportunity to text back and CANCEL your appointment if it’s no longer needed.

It is therefore vital that you inform the surgery of your mobile number.

If you do not wish to receive these text messages, you can opt out by texting back “STOP”.
