SMS Examples



Some examples of how the text messaging service is typically used are displayed below.


The “Sender Identification” on each message is branded with your hospital or surgery name, not an anonymous number. Examples include: “Surgery”, “Doctor”, “Hospital”, or “BUPA”.

All messages are completely personalised to include the patient name and appointment time. You can even include the individual doctor that the patient is booked to see – it’s totally up to you!
