Adding a Patient Record can be done from 3 different parts of the system. Broadly speaking, they can be added through the Appointments screen, the Home Screen and the Patient Record screen. 

The Appointments screen has slightly less data entry, so is perhaps useful if people ring up or the practice is busy. However, in our experience, new patients only register at a practice when they need an appointment! Details missed on this screen (for example Doctors details) can easily be added afterwards. 

We will now look at how each screen works.

A Patient Record is shown is the Update screen.  Beneath is the screen shot of the other tabs which will be visiable once information has been added.  

Any prominent information is shown in the patient Dashboard, such as their Last Sight Test and Last CL dates, their Next Appointment and also all their Recalls. "Deceased", Till Balances or Scheme Arrears will also flash in Bold Red letters here, while if a patient has had their reminders stopped, that is also shown.
