Urgent changes to PR form signing

Guidance below has come from the NHS BSA


In order to avoid any risk of infection, the receptionist or dental nurse should inform the patient that the forms are being signed on their behalf. The receptionist or dental nurse must sign the form and state ‘Signed on behalf of the patient due to COVID 19’. This will ensure that if the patient records are reviewed in the future it will not be questioned why the patient did not sign the forms.

If you wish to scan a paper PR form into the comms section in R4+ for a patient a comment detailing this can be added or ‘Signed on behalf of the patient due to COVID 19’ can be entered as the title of the document image attached to show this process.
