Diabetes Documents Protocol

This protocol contains all the Documents on the Documents page.  Running the Protocol produces a menu from which you select the document you want to open.


Documents will need editing to add you surgery name and to alter any aspects which are specific to your practice.  Text highlighted in RED requires your attention.  You may use different codes in your area and so you will need to review the merged fields to ensure they work correctly.

  • On mouse over it shows latest Hba1c and Cholesterol results and the date they were taken
  • Alerts change depending on where people are in the annual review process - await invite/review due bloods needed/book 30 min nurse or 20 min HCA/Review complete
  • Filters patients into 30 min nurse or 20 min HCA appointments based on blood results and their medical record
  • Alerts used by receptionists to book the patient into the correct appointment type
