SMS Minder

send email to SMS - NHS Mail replacement

Cost effective email to SMS

Central funding for NHSmail SMS services was cut on 31st March 2015, removing a valuable service for NHS patients. SMS Minder replaces that service allowing you to send patient SMS reminders, from 1p per message, through our range of email to SMS messaging solutions.

With SMS Minder, you can enjoy peace of mind with a fully managed service including supply, installation and management, all available with a zero capital outlay.

We have served the NHS nationally for over ten years, from South Devon to Midlothian and we are a G-Cloud Government Digital Marketplace Supplier.

  • Direct replacement for NHSMail
  • SMS Blast
  • Individual SMS
  • Conversational SMS
  • Scheduled SMS
  • System Triggered SMS
  • Email to SMS via SMTP - same as NHSMail
