Attachments can be added from the link shown above or from the Action button if, for example, the referral letter is missing.
Once the information is added the action will be removed from the Action button menu.
If clinical information is attached to the referral, the option to add further information will not be displayed on the Action button. Any attachments from a GP integrated system will also be displayed on the referral summary screen (an image of this is provided further down this page).
Selecting to add or remove attachments will display a newly formatted screen above. From here, users can select locally saved clinical information to attach to the referral or remove attachments which are no longer required.
As the example image above was initiated as an advice and guidance request there is an option to ‘Link advice attachments’ to the referral. This function was previously available in the e-RS system.
If the referral was not initiated as an advice and guidance, the above screen will appear when adding or amending clinical information through web-based e-RS.
When attachments are added to a referral the files are displayed on the referral summary screen in the attachments section.
The image above show how the clinical information (added from a GP integrated system) will be shown under a ‘Clinical information’ section.
This section will only be visible if information has been attached. Current rules apply, meaning users can only update these documents from their system. An ‘Open all’ option allows all the GP clinical information added to be expanded.
No changes have been made to how files are attached or the size of the file/s which can be attached.
