Facility to record two GP's details in client record.

We would like the facility to record two GP’s on a client’s record such as a treating GP and a referring GP, or perhaps a referring GP and a specialist.  (without entering the 2nd GP/specialist in the client’s contact screen).  We often get clients who have been referred by their treating GP, then  the  client obtains another referral from a 2nd GP who has given them a referral which enables them to claim a medicare rebate.  Therefore this 2nd GP needs to be added to the client’s record under the additional tab, (so we have easy access to the details we need to enable the client to claim their Medicare rebate, i.e., GP provider number). 
This therefore replaces the details of the initial referring GP.  Client want us to send letters to both of these GP’s.  Therefore we have to write a note in events recording the details of the original referring GP, and we also write a note in the notes screen reminding practitioners to send letters to both GP’s .
