Whooping Cough

There has been an increase in the incidence of whooping cough recently. The Health Protection Agency has brought out new guidelines on diagnosis and management, they can be found in the Guidelines section.

EMIS Link

Just to let you know, the EMIS link functionality has been restored.
If you see a patient and think you might benefit from seeing more of the record, please click the EMIS Web tab (if present). This will take you to a consent form, once you have checked with the patient that it is okay to view the record (it is audited) then follow the prompts and you will be able to see a summary of the EMIS record for that patient.
Please let me know if there are any further problems

Working with the Walk-in Centre

We have published a memo about working with the Walk-in Centre (WiC) staff at Bensham once they move to the Adastra system today. It is part of the roll-out of the 111 service and the move to the QE site later this year. Please e-mail me if you have any queries.
