Clare Road Medical Centre using a SMS messaging service to send appointment reminders and other messages to our patients.
This quick and convenient option is available to you if you have provided us with your mobile phone number and you are 16 or over.
On average we have about 20 lost appointments every week where patients do not turn up and do not cancel. That is the equivalent of two morning surgeries.
We realise that it can be easy to forget an appointment so why don`t you make use of our free, automatic text reminder service. This will send a text to your mobile about 24 hours before your appointment reminding you
Please make sure that we have your up-to-date mobile number and inform us if your number changes.
If you would like to opt out of any future contact via text messaging, then please contact reception staff.
Patients can take a greater involvement in their own healthcare via the internet, in a similar way to shopping or banking online.
My Health Online gives patients the opportunity to book GP appointments order repeat prescriptions update their general details such as change of address all from the convenience of your own computer or device.

Chronic disease refers to medical conditions that may have an ongoing impact on your health. In particular we use this term to refer to the following conditions:
Hypertension, Diabetes, Asthma, COPD, CKD (Chronic kidney disease),
Mental Health conditions such as schizophrenia or bipolar depression,
Ischaemic heart disease, Heart Failure, Stroke, mini-stroke (TIA), Rheumatoid , Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Thyroid disease, Atrial Fibrillation,

We encourage our patients to take an active role in helping to manage their own conditions, but it is helpful to come for a review once a year.
We would like to ask for your help in this matter. By taking responsibility for your medical condition you can help ensure that you are having the best possible care.
This review process is important and we will not be able to continue prescribing repeat medications without it.
