NHS Knowsley Uses Textlocal's Bulk SMS Software
Knowsley Health and Wellbeing Centre wanted to run a unique campaign giving smokers the help and support that they needed to find a way of quitting that suited them.
People could sign up to the programme by texting QUITTER to 60777.
The Textlocal system sent different messages of encouragement at different times to a variety of people.
Quitters were able to get the best support directly to the palms of their hands at the most crucial times.
- Since launch, the campaign has helped 366 people quit smoking
- SMS has enabled NHS Knowsley to stay in touch with quitters every step of the way
- SMS is a great tool for campaigns that require a constant stream of communication between an organisation and client
Sending text has helped in keeping our members on the right track and it’s an extremely cost-effective tool for us.
