UFS Medical has a recall and reminder system in place for all patients requiring follow up appointments for immunisations, Pap smears, health assessments and care plans. Please advise your Doctor if you do not wish to be included in this service.
UFS Medical operates an SMS appointment reminder system. Patients receive a reminder SMS (text message) the afternoon prior to a scheduled appointment. If you do not wish to be included in this service, please advise our Reception Staff.
