Scheme postcodes will be part of your ReferAll set-up process. When adding a new referral via the 'Refer Patient' icon, if the postcode is not in your scheme coverage area a message will display. Here's how to add a postcode to your scheme:
1. Click the Schemes icon
2. Scroll past the scheme information and click 'Add New Postcode'
'Add New Postcode' button not available? Please ask your manager or contact ReferAll support to request this permission.
3. Click the Postcode area box to add.
Add the whole 'generic' part of the postcode until the final number leaving out the last two letters.
For example: Manchester 'BN1 1' is valid etc.
'M11' would be invalid as it does not feature the first digit of the inward code.
A Postcode is a combination of letters and numbers which defines four different levels of a geographic unit. Each Postcode consists of two parts, called the Outward Code (e.g. ‘PO1’ 1AF) and the Inward Code (e.g. PO1 ‘1AF’). The first part, or Outward Code, is separated from the second part, the Inward Code, by a single space.
