Sending SMS Reminders
When booking an appointment, you can send a SMS reminder to a patient.
- Select the patient to make an appointment, the Appointment Information view displays.
This has two additional fields:
- SMS Reminder
- From the SMS Reminder drop-down choose the status.
- Don't Send a reminder
- Send a reminder (please ensure patient consents)
- If the patient consents to an SMS Reminder, enter the patient's mobile number into the Contact box.
Alternatively, if the patient already has a number stored, confirm the number and select from the drop-down list.
- Select OK to finish.
The patient receives an SMS Reminder as confirmation of booking and 24 hours before their appointment.
The At: XXXXX is taken from the session heading in your Appointments book.
