SMS Reminder Service
The Mill Medical Practice has launched Mjog, a new SMS text reminder service to replace its existing service. This new service will enable patients to receive a confirmation text at the time of booking an appointment and a reminder the day before the appointment itself.
We will also use this service from time to time to inform you of any relevant updates and campaigns, for example; holiday closures or our annual ‘Flu clinics.
You may have received a text message saying: “New message service from The Mill Medical Practice visit www.themillmedicalpractice.co.uk for details. Reply STOP if you do not wish to receive texts from us” This is a message that we have sent to everyone on our database with a mobile number to inform them of this new service.
You can opt out of this service by replying STOP. However, if the mobile is shared you will need to contact the surgery directly if you personally wish to opt out or have the consent of everyone who shares the device before replying STOP otherwise all users will be opted out and will not receive these messages.
If you wish to find out more about the service and fill in our consent form or you wish to record your decision to opt out please click here to view our SMS information document

It is worth noting that SMS reminders are now sent at key times during the day so may result in a delay in being received as it will not be sent straight away at the point of booking anymore. If an appointment is booked within 24hours of the booking time no SMS will be sent as reminders are only sent upto 24hours ahead of the appointment time.
