Text Services

Text appointment reminder service

Giffords offers an automatic text appointment reminder service.

In addition to automatic appointment reminders, health professionals may text you with advice in response to investigations, for example, asking you to make a telephone appointment. This recent innovation is appreciated by patients and improves our communication with you.

This proactive response to results is in addition to the telephone results line open daily between 2-4pm, for you to access your results. While we endeavour to contact a patient with an abnormal result, it remains your responsibility to follow up tests with an enquiry for the results.

You can register for online access to your results through our website by making an enquiry at reception.

We deliver health information via the smart phone app ‘MJOGMessenger’. Information on how to download this is on our website, displayed at the surgery or available at reception.
