Additions and subtractions
From version 44 patients identified by the COVID-19 Population Risk Assessment have been added to the SPL, applying the following business rules:
The COVID-19 Population Risk Assessment will calculate based on assumed data as well as data from the patient record. Specifically assumed values relate to sex, ethnic category, BMI measure and postcode.
