Headline

GPs to be charged for sending text messages through email in 'short-sighted' DH move

Comment

Go a head. We will send a blanket text just before this comes on to explain why they will no longer get appointment reminder etc. I'm not paying for a service when our core funding is dropping year on year. If they start charging for NHS mail, I'll stop using that also and adv people they can call me or write to me if they need to send confidential information.
