Patient Status Alerts

If a patient has cancer screening that is overdue, they will have a !! icon under their name. Clicking this will open up the cancer screening template.


The cancer screening templates include guidance of the cancer screening guidelines, along with links to cancer resources and SNOMED-CT coding to record advice and outcomes. There is also a pre-set SMS, email and letter that can be sent to patients.
