Sending letters to your patients is an extremely powerful tool. Letters are more personal than any other messages and your patients love this extra effort. As a consequence, sending letters will increase retention and decrease cancellations and no show.
You can create and customise your personal letters on Cliniq Apps (adding your letterheads) and we will print them and post them to your patients. So, you don't have to worry about anything.
The following will show you how you can set up a welcome letter to your patients who are having their first appointment in the next few days (only available in Australia).

1. Messages: Create one Letter as follows:

Letter: First Appointment Cancellation Reducer
