Hi Rebecca. Thank you for your post.

The results when using the professional & non-professional options on the Patient Referrals report are listed by surname as these areas of the patient file store the first name and surname of the referrer in separate fields. In contrast, the Referring Doctors field on the patient file stores the referrer's name in a single text field meaning that we cannot order them reliably by surname as Front Desk sees a single string of text.

We can consider changing this but this would involve some re-engineering of how GPs and referring doctors are used in the future.
