RECALLS & REMINDERS
High quality health care requires a recall system for abnormal results from pathology, radiology or specialists. If necessary, you will be contacted by your Medsana team by SMS, phone or letter to request an appointment to discuss these results. We ask for your understanding and acceptance of this policy.
Health promotional reminders may also be sent via SMS to help you achieve healthier lives. Medsana participates in government recall systems such as the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program Register and National Cancer Screening Register. Please let us know if you do not want to participate in these programs.
