Remote health monitoring allows us to stay connected with our patients through secure tools, including your mobile phone, to help monitor your conditions without booking an appointment. Learn more about these tools here!
Please note that remote monitoring is not an emergency service. If you require urgent medical assistance, please call NHS 111 or contact your GP.
The Florence Telehealth (Flo) system uses text messages to communicate with your healthcare provider. You will receive SMS messages to send in health readings or providing you with reminders or wellbeing advice.
No special equipment is required—Florence works on any mobile phone that can send and receive SMS messages. There is no cost to you. Flo’s short-code number is registered with the Phone-Paid Services Authority, which can be checked here: https://psauthority.org.uk/.

Registering with the NHS Scotland Inhealthcare remote monitoring service can help you manage your health and symptoms at home. The service will automatically contact you at agreed intervals to ask about your health. This is a FREE service used via mobile app or website and—for some services—by text message or telephone call.
The Inhealthcare system reviews your responses and readings and will provide immediate feedback and advice specific to you, to help you manage your. If any of your responses suggest that you need medical attention, you will be advised to seek medical attention yourself in the usual way. Your doctor or nurse will be able to see your responses and to track them over time. If your responses are potentially a cause for concern, your doctor or nurse will be notified, but they may not have the opportunity to review them for some time.
