NHS approved URL shortener?

Hi all,

My team are in the process of implementing a solution that allows online video appointments via MS Teams. We’re currently sending appointment reminders out to patients via SMS, and would like to append the joining instructions / link as part of the message content.

We’re keen to save costs and therefore send a shortened URL as opposed to the long joining link.

We’re thinking of building a simple URL shortener to achieve this, but figured it would be worth asking if there was an NHS branded / approved solution before we embark on the development?

Any pointers or ideas would be most appreciated.
