As you may know we send out text messages to patients to remind them of their appointments.
If they are unable to attend they can reply "CANCEL", this then cancels the appointment, avoiding a DNA appointment and cost to the NHS. This also saves the Practice and the patients time as patients don’t have to ring.
We also send out text messages to gather information, such as smoking status, and to invite patients to attend clinics e.g. flu vaccination.
If you have a smartphone you can now download an app called MJOG messenger free of charge. This will notify you that you have an appointment, you can also cancel in the same way as text messages but there is no charge for you to do this.
Eventually we will be sending out other communications such as questionnaires etc, if we need this to update your records, this will save time as it will automatically save into your records .
Please visit http://www.mjog.com/messenger for more information.

During the last two weeks we have been selling cakes to patients and contacts visiting the surgery.
So far we have raised £436, which is a fantastic amount for a very worthy charity.
However...... we would like to raise even more! As such, our PPG have kindly agreed to host another coffee morning at the surgery on Friday 27 September 2019 between 9:30am and 11am - please do come and join us for a drink and cake - everyone is welcome!

On Saturday 14 September 2019 we held our first Saturday flu clinic for patients over 65 years. Over 550 vaccines were administered. In conjunction with the clinic we also held our first Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee morning.
We are delighted to announce that we raised £346.16 for this very worthy cause. Thank you so much to our volunteers for running the stall whilst our staff concentrated on the patients. We would also like to say a massive thank you to everyone who purchased drinks and cakes during the clinic.
We will continue to sell cakes this week and hope to host a further coffee morning on Friday 27 September in conjunction with our PPG.
