St Mary’s Surgery has upgraded its text messaging service. Patients who previously signed up to MJOG and currently receive texts from us, are now invited to use MJOG Messenger.
The new MJOG Messenger app is FREE and provides safe and secure health information direct to your mobile. The app allows us to contact you with important messages, including reminders of your appointments or annual health reviews. You can also cancel appointments using MJOG without having to ring the surgery.
Messages sent via the Messenger app have no maximum limit which means the surgery can provide you with clearer, more detailed messages. All messages are sent securely and you can also PIN protect access to MJOG Messenger if you wish to.
The app only works with smart phones and you can download it from the App Store for I Phone or from Google Play for android phones, or see here for more information.
If you already receive text messages from us and you don’t have a smart phone, or don’t wish to install the app we will continue to send you text messages as we do now.
Please note you should ensure the surgery has your current contact details, including your mobile phone number, before you register for this service. Patients who order medication or book appointments via SystmOnline or similar services, will be able to update their contact details via these services.
