Appointment reminders may be sent to your mobile phone. The message will take a very simple form: it will be from NHS-No Reply.

We are al so starting to use the text service for other reminders for health campaigns, vaccinations, reviews, blood test etc.
Can't attend? - text CANCEL
We have new software installed for SMS text message appointment reminders and can offer patients the facility to CANCEL their appointment by text if they cannot attend or no longer need the appointment. This links directly to our clinical system and means the appointment becomes immediately available for re-booking. (N.B. do not add additional words before or after you text CANCEL)
After your appointment, you will receive a text to enable you to take part in the Friends and Family Test. A larger number of patients are currently offering feedback on the service provided by Lyme Bay Medical & Dental Practice giving us a more accurate guide to patient satisfaction levels
