SMS messages for all hospital and Government appointments

It is a relatively low cost to introduce SMS messages to confirm appointments 24 hours in advance.  It would save significant amounts in missed appointments at the hospital, GPs, dentists and all other Government Departments.

Why the contribution is important

It is important as it will significantly reduce the number of missed appointment and therefore save the related costs.
