Include GP surgery


We use the Referring Doctor element of patient notes for GPs mostly and it would be massively helpful if when entering a name to search it also showed the first line of address, or company name as many doctors work from multiple locations. In order to overcome this at present we have each doctor’s surgery name in parentheses as part of their name but this causes issues with the automatic functions in letters. Many thanks.


Hi Ascott, absolutely. Many patients are often more familiar with the practice name than their GP. In this situation, the only way to see the practice name is to add this in the Surname field which is really not helpful when using merge fields etc.
So, PLEASE team, do pick this one up. Appending the company name to the results in the
’Patient details>Referring doctor’ drop-down would be so useful. Thank you.
