Many healthcare providers have been using the NHSMail SMS messaging system for many years, to reach patients and employees with important reminders and information. From the start of October 2015, NHS England ceased to centrally fund SMS messages for Primary Care, and passed down the responsibility to CCGs and healthcare providers to select an alternative SMS supplier and fund a replacement service.
To help make the transition away from using NHSMail SMS as smooth as possible, MJog has teamed up with leading UK SMS provider, FireText. James Huff, FireText Co-founder explains; “Choosing your new NHS SMS provider should not be complicated, so FireText and MJog are working together to make this an easy and seamless process. Flat rate, competitive pricing from FireText alongside robust security of data means that using MJog and FireText is the sensible choice.”
Kevin Nutt, Managing Director at MJog continues, “As a UK based and proven high volume supplier of SMS which is listed on G-Gloud, with excellent data security credentials (ISO27001) to meet the demanding information governance requirements of the NHS, FireText ticks all the boxes as an MJog SMS Gateway partner.”
