Introducing Modality Partnership

The local practices that have decided to come together includes Crawley Down Health Centre, Judges Close Surgery, Park View Health Partnership and Ship Street Surgery.

Modality Partnership share our vision and commitment to NHS values and to provide high quality services to our patients.

MJOG. – Patient Messaging Service

MJog Messenger is a free app for patients allowing quick and easy two-way communications with their Practice.


The familiar user interface means patients will be able to use the app straight out of the box, providing patients with a convenient way to manage appointments, be alerted about services and receive reminders from their surgery. PIN authentication can be enabled to grant peace of mind for your patient.

  • No cost for Patients to use the MJog Messenger App – it is free to download with no message costs.
  • Simple to use app – MJog Messenger is self-explanatory with clear details including links and buttons to complete app interactions – familiar and recognisable styling.
  • More informative messages for Patients, compared to SMS, with styled text and images allowing for clear and branded Practice communications.
  • Convenient communications – app provides a straightforward view of documents including pdfs and letters the practice sends via the app which is delivered to one device (accessible across multiple).
  • Easy access – it’s a simple process to cancel appointments in ‘one click’, provide feedback to Family, Friends Test, or complete patient surveys.
  • Informative, relevant and efficient communications received – letter, pictures, links etc. all contained in one message.
  • Provides quick access to Google Maps, Facebook and other apps so patients can stay in touch with your Practice.
