Whitby, Coast and Moors Primary Care Network will be starting to use a web-based solution to help us manage our appointment system for the COVID-19 vaccination clinics.
We will be sending text messages to invite patients to book an appointment for their COVID-19 vaccine.
The message you receive will come from ‘accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk’
We realise there are lots of scams out there at the moment and wanted to reassure you that if you receive a message from ‘accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk’ inviting you to click on a link to book your appointment that it is a legitimate text message from your GP practice.
Once you click on the link in your text message you will be directed to our appointment system and be asked to choose an appointment time. You will also be asked for your date of birth. You will not be asked for any other personal information.
We understand that not everyone has a mobile phone or will be able to respond to a text message so we will continue to telephone those patients to invite them for their COVID-19 vaccination and book an appointment for them.
If you have any concerns please contact us.
