Making it easier to keep in touch with our patients
To make keeping in touch easier, we are starting to use email to communicate appointment information and test results with our patients.
We want to make sure we are sending information to the correct email address and that our patients are happy for us to communicate with them by email.
To do this, we are in the process of emailing all patients to confirm that the email address we have on file for them is correct and that they are happy for us to communicate health information with them via email.
The email will come from the following email address: ADHB Patient Verification (email@example.com)
If you get one of our emails please respond to us. If you have any questions, don't hesistate to email us at ADHB Patient Verification or check our frequently asked questions below.
Thanks for your help!
