'Text-Connect'™ text service helps MP save hospital with campaign updates.


A Midlands Conservative MP, Mark Pritchard, has selected text-connect™ as a new communications tool in his fight to save local hospital services.


[UKPRwire, Tue Sep 26 2006] A Midlands Conservative MP, Mark Pritchard, has selected text-connect™ as a new communications tool in his fight to save local hospital services.

The local NHS trust has accumulated £30 million of debt and is running at a multi-million pound deficit each year. The trust is now subject to a public consultation on the future of its' services.

Fearing the loss of jobs and services at the Trust, the local MP has launched a petition to save the hospital and is using text-connect™ to update campaigners on threats to the hospital and on his actions to save it.

SMS text updates are easy to set-up using text-connect™, which makes it simple to upload contact information & numbers from a spreadsheet or database. The message takes seconds to draft and send and can be personalised for each recipient.

Texts can be pre-scheduled to send at a specific time but arrive almost instantly on the campaigners phone, making text-connect™ ideal for disseminating urgent or time critical information.

Mr Pritchard said: "There are many ways to communicate with constituents but text communication is increasingly more popular. It is important that people have access to information on how they can help protect and enhance their communities and Text-Connect are assisting me in that endeavour".

No hardware or software needs be installed as text-connect™ is web based and can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection.

Mr Pritchard selected our 'Sales and Marketing' package.
