Each year, thousands of patients miss their appointments simply because they forget when it is. Text reminders have been proven to substantially reduce the number of missed appointments and is a FREE service which started in March 2010. It is hoped that this will help to reduce the number of missed appointments and therefore improve appointment availability for patients.
