Make Phone Number Compulsory Field

With the developing Covid-19 situation and the need to be able to track and trace patients, I thought that making the contact phone number field compulsory would be a good option when booking new patients into the system.

Sometimes the reception staff are so busy with the GP’s in the practice that they forget to fill in the phone number when booking a new patient. If it was a compulsory field, then the y would be prompted to get the info before moving on.
