Patients who do not not attend their appointments create a great damage to your clinic especially if they do not re-book.

Cliniq Apps will help re-book these patients by using automated messaging in which the patient is reminded that fees may apply due to DNA if they don't re-book. 

Follow the instruction below to set the best automation:

1. Messages: Create one SMS , one Email and one Phone Call list.

You may use the scripts below:

SMS: DNA Rebooker

You missed your appt today with us. Pls call us on 000000 or click (insert booking link) to reschedule if you haven't already.


Email: DNA Rebooker

Subject: Action Required - It's 4 days passed!


It looks like you missed an appointment with us 4 days ago!

Usually, a non-attendance fee applies for no-shows (but we hate doing things like that!). We're able to waive the fee for you today if you reschedule your appointment. Just click the BOOK HERE button below or you may also contact us on 00000.

Clinic name

Phone Call List: You can either leave a note for your reference or create your own phone call script.
