PS-2146 Request Limiter Moved to Demand Control tab
The request limiter settings can now be found on the Demand management tab, from where PATCHS Admin users can set the maximum number of requests patients can submit throughout the day.
PS-2156 Triage topics can now be selected from a drop-down list.
When you record your triage decision, you can now select the main topic(s) of the request from a drop-down list.
And all chosen topics are included a part of the triage decision
PS-2129 Inviting staff users whose NHS email is already taken
A PATCHS Admin user can now invite a staff user if their NHS email address already belongs to a non-digital patient in PATCHS.
If their NHS email address is in use by a patient user, they are advised to either try a different email address, or ask the staff user to change their email address on their patient account.
Patient Registration - NHS Login
PS-2146 NHS login - patients who’ve moved practices
NHS login patients who have moved practice are now directed to the transfer practice page when they try to log into PATCHS from their old practice.
PS-2127 Use PDS lookup to add a non-digital patient from clinical system.
To save time when using the toolbar from the clinical system to open a patient in PATCHS, if the patient doesn’t exist in PATCHS, PDS spine lookup will be used to create a non-digital patient.
