You can upload 50 at a time and this help article explains how.

PS-1996 - Questionnaire name

The questionnaire name is now displayed correctly when a staff user clicks to view the questionnaire results - previously it showed the patient facing view.

Patchs Help and Suggestions for Improvements

So that you can get help with Patchs from the correct team and in preparation for the launch of our Ideas portal, the help menu and feedback wording have been updated.

The Patchs AI feature settings page has been updated to show more clearly which of the Patchs AI feature settings are available and have been enabled for your practice.

The file upload instructions on the bulk message patient upload page have been updated so they show for both clinical systems.

Practice Setup

Patient Registration & Login

PS-3185 - Email verification

When patient or carer users have verified their email address, they are now required to enter their login details.

Patients are re-directed appropriately when there’s a mismatch of ODS code.

Outbound Messaging

Phone numbers are now fully visible when sending templates.
