We can now send texts to your phone through NHS secure broadband. So far we have used this service to tell people their medication has arrived in the dispensary from the supplier, to ask them to contact us to discuss a query on their prescription and to see how they are getting on with their patches / Champix, when we are helping them to stop smoking. (The NHS says we have to record how quitters are getting on every 7 days, and you really don’t want us phoning you when you are in the middle of a job. A text is so much more convenient.) We promise we won’t use it to try and sell you things.
Please check we have your mobile number on your records next time you are in the pharmacy, or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
