The Patchs 1.64 release includes the following feature updates and bug fixes

Feature Updates

PS-1965 Submitting requests for all patients

You can now easily submit requests on behalf of all patients through Patchs.


Previously, it was not possible for the practice to submit requests on behalf of users already registered on Patchs. 

PS-2275 Text formatting in EMIS

We have updated the way the Patchs consultations are formatted when they are filed into EMIS as free text, to make it easier for you to read. 

PS-2316 SMS messaging

For practices with SMS enabled

As a practice you can now choose to only send SMS messages to patients.


Previously, Patchs sent combined SMS and email messages. This will reduce the number of messages sent to patients.

PS-1820 Language translation

For practices with Language Translation enabled

When you send questionnaires to patients, these will now also be translated into the patients preferred language.

PS-2234 Accessibility improvements

To improve accessibility we have made improvements to the User Interface. You may notice some slight colour changes to improve contrast.

PS2329 Completion emails 

You can now choose not to send emails to patients informing them that their request has been completed.


We have also been working hard in the background making lots of technical updates to make the Patchs experience even better.
