Text reminders could save NHS millions

“The NHS could save tens of millions of pounds each year by sending text message to patients to remind them of hospital appointments.
Patients who are reminded in this way, or by phone, are 34 per cent less likely to miss an appointment than those who are not, according to a systematic review published in the Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare.”
