SMS Appointment Reminders

Did you know that you can Confirm or Cancel your Doctor’s appointment by sending a simple text message from your phone? The day before your scheduled appointment, you will receive a text message reminding you of your appointment. This text message will generally contain the name of the Doctor you’re seeing, and the time of your appointment.

To confirm your appointment and to notify us that you will be coming to your appointment, you simply just need to reply with the letter “Y”. To cancel your scheduled appointment and to notify us that you are unable to attend, you simply just need to reply with a “N”.

For this to work effectively we must have your current mobile number, or the best mobile number to remind you about your appointment. Over the next few weeks we’ll be handing out forms over the reception counter for you to update your details.

If you’d like more information about this service and you feel as though it’s something that could help you, don’t be afraid to ask the girls at the front counter for more information.

Have a good weekend!

How do you know if someone’s having a stroke? Think F.A.S.T.
 
This week marks National Stroke Week and is aimed at increasing awareness for the signs and symptoms of a stroke. A stroke is always a medical emergency. Recognise the signs of stroke and call 000. 
 
A stroke is not a heart attack. A stroke happens when the supply of blood to the brain is suddenly interrupted. Some strokes are fatal while others cause permanent or temporary disability.
 
The longer a stroke remains untreated, the greater the chance of stroke related brain damage. Emergency medical treatment soon after symptoms begin improves the chance of survival and successful rehabilitation.
 
Facial weakness, arm weakness and difficulty with speech are the most common symptoms or signs of stroke, but they are not the only signs.
 
The National Stroke Foundation recommends the F.A.S.T. test as an easy way to remember the most common signs of stroke.
 
Using the F.A.S.T. test involves asking these simple questions:
 
FACE - Check their face. Has their mouth drooped?
ARMS - Can they lift both arms?
SPEECH - Is their speech slurred? Do they understand you?
TIME - Is critical. If you see any of these signs call 000 straight away.
