We've built Patient Message History to help you quickly get up to speed on your conversation history with a specific patient, by viewing all the text messages you've sent and received from them in one place.

How do I send a text message to a patient?

Through accuRx Web, you can easily text your patients from either your mobile or desktop. We've written a separate support article to explain this in more detail.

How do I view a specific patient's message history and message them?

⚠️ Please note - You’ll need to repeat this process every time you want to message a different patient.

  • Step 1: Log in to https://web.accurx.com/login using your NHS credentials

  • Step 2: Search for a single patient or select one from your Patient List

  • Step 3: Click on the 'View message history' link within the 'Message patient' button

  • Step 4: Scroll up to view all the historical messages you have exchanged with the patient. The most recent messages will always show up at the bottom of the page along with a timestamp.

  • Step 5: Click on the 'Message patient' button at the bottom centre of the page to start composing a message to the patient.

What messages will I be able to view in a patient's message history?

You can view all the messages you have sent and received from the patient since you started using accuRx web. These messages will not be visible to any other user within your organisation.

How will I be notified when a patient responds?

When a patient replies to your message, you will receive an email notification in your NHS email inbox (Note: this is the email you use to log in to accuRx Web). The email will contain a secure link to access the patient’s response and will open in a new tab on your personal device. You will need to be logged into accuRx Web for the reply to open.

How are patient messages stored?

We store all messages and images securely in line with information governance and security processes. Read more on accuRx Web: IG and Security.
