Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust has partnered with DrDoctor to allow us to continue to provide video consultations and also to introduce digital appointment reminders. DrDoctor is a digital communication tool that helps the hospital to communicate effectively with patients. This is part of our ongoing commitment to provide the right care at the right time.
Digital Appointment Reminders
Patients will soon receive text message and/or email reminders about upcoming outpatient appointments they have at the hospital. These reminders will be for all Outpatient mediums (including face to face consultations, video and telephone) These messages will also contain a link through to additional information about the appointment, including appointment details, clinic location and clinic information.
Text messages will come from the number 07860 039092 and emails will come from
Please make sure the team you are seeing have the correct contact details for you so you can benefit from this reminder service.
If you do not want to receive these reminders, you can opt out at any time by replying ‘STOP’
Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust is now offering online video consultations to our patients in a number of our outpatient services, where your doctor or nurse has identified you as suitable for this type of appointment.
We recognise that travelling to a hospital appointment is not always convenient and can sometimes be costly and time consuming. Video consultations provide an alternative way to attend your hospital appointment, without the inconvenience of travel. Therefore, if you do not need an investigation, blood test or physical examination, your clinician may offer you a video consultation.
DrDoctor will replace Attend Anywhere for video consultations. This will begin to be introduced from early October 2022.
