Telling patients at your practice about Anima
These are 3 easy ways to get the word out about Anima and encourage patients to start submitting requests. We'll work with you to implement these in a way that suits your practice during your Anima onboarding.
Uploading our banner to your practice website
Patients will access Anima through your practice website. We recommend including a banner somewhere prominent on your website to direct patients to the Anima registration page.
During your onboarding process, we'll provide you with our banners and work with you to upload them to your practice website.
We've also included some guidance here to help you:
Updating your practice website yourself
If you maintain and update your practice website yourself, it's usually very easy to insert an image into your website and link it to another website.
Sample email to send to your website provider or editor
Download our banners here
To download our banners, right cick the image and select 'Save image as...'. We've provided some options so you can pick the one that suits your practice website's colour scheme the best!
Sending a mass text message to all patients
We also recommend sending a mass text message to your patients with a link to the Anima registration page to encourage them to sign up.
You may already use text messaging to send your patients updates and information; we can provide template messages to direct them to the Anima registration page, or to request that they submit a particular review.
Suggested text message templates
This generic template could be sent to your whole patient list:
Using your practice's answerphone message
We recommend using your practice's answerphone message to inform patients about Anima, and direct them to the practice website where they can click the Anima banner to sign up and submit a request straight away rather than waiting on the phone.
If you record your own answerphone messages, you might want to get someone recognisable - like your lead GP or one of your reception team - to record the message for patients.
