Fax number required for referring GP

We fax (not email) reports to referring GPs at the start and end of EPC/TCA referrals. Unfortunately, the fax number for the referring GP is not able to be imported into these reports using any of the available tags.

Granted, it is only on rare occasions that the referring GP is different to the patient's GP. But it would help if either:
  • The fax number was included in the <<ReferringDr>> tag
  • Or there was a separate tag that would populate the referring doctor's fax number.
Thank you for your consideration :)

Hi Rebecca. Thank you for your suggestion.

I have spent some time investigating the possibility of a Referring Doctor fax number letter tag.

The Referring Doctor field on the Billing Details tab allows you to freely type text or select a practitioner in your GP/referring doctor list to copy their name and provider number into the field. In both cases, no link is formed between the text in the referring doctor field and the practitioner’s details in your GP/referring doctors list.

We have scheduled a review of the Billing Details Referring Doctors area for the future at which time we aim to expand the capability of this field to accommodate ideas such as yours.
