NHS Freeview service expands to text<br />

The NHS Direct launched their own channel on the Freeview digital service back in December this is meant to give people who are able to access it on channel 108, information on services and other information. Now this service is set to expand into the mobile communication sector with text messaging.

This text service is linked to the NHS Direct channel, and all that is needed it that a text is sent to 61121, along with the service that is required and a short time later there will be a return text message containing the information required and the closest available services to the postcode that has been given, this information will consist of addresses, phone numbers etc.

This is good idea for people who are on go, maybe they are stuck on a train and want to cancel or even make an appointment to see a hospital specialist or just even their GP. There are further developments planned for the future this may include health alerts and other health related services which could make using the service more worthwhile.
