Benefits

Patients now expect a reminder as part of the NHS service, highlighting the importance of a smooth transition with a replacement to ensure DNA’s don’t sky rocket.

Case studies also show that SMS communications within NHS provide many benefits including:

  • Appointment reminders – Lowering DNA rates by over 30%
  • Nurse bank shift filling – reducing agency costs
  • Patient alerts – results and vaccinations
  • Staff communications – major alerts
  • Patient experience – The Friends and Family Test

Attendance is important for Procurement, Nurse bank, OP managers and IT and we encourage delegates to input their thoughts and share ideas with peers throughout the workshop.
