Text Marketing

Inoculation and other reminders

Mobile SMS marketing is being used by many surgeries throughout the UK, as a way of improving communication between medical practitioner and patient. Information can be sent to a patient within seconds and because mobile phones tend to be carried on the person, they will be read with minimal delay.

SMS marketing is easy to set-up and very cost-effective, working out at a fraction of the cost of a phone call.

How can mobile marketing help your practice?

Appointment reminders

Missed appointments from “no shows” cost a lot of money. A letter or phone reminder is not only expensive but also time consuming. Using our Web SMS service, in minutes you can set-up a whole weeks reminders to go out a day or two before each appointment is due. Our 2 way SMS text service also gives patients the opportunity to cancel their appointment if necessary, allowing you to fill the space with another patient.

Check ups

Text messages are also a cost-effective way of reminding people to make an appointment. This is especially true in a dental practice, where check ups are usually recommended once every six months. SMS provides a useful service too, for letting patients know when relevant clinics are being held.

Inoculations

GPs may also choose to send a text message to parents to remind them of inoculations required for their children or to older patients for flu inoculations.
