What exactly needs to be entered on the clinical portal by clinic staff?

We have tried to minimise the information that needs to be entered by clinic staff. This includes: verify the patient has attended the clinic; verify the clinic has agreed to take on responsibility for the ongoing care of the attending patient; flag

notes to SHL team where relevant (e.g. for safeguarding issues). Brief free text information about outcome of the patient - such as “Treated for GC and PN initiated” or “HIV confirmatory tests taken and given first outpatient appt” - are not essential, but could be valuable to the SHL recall team to verify safe transition of care.
