Read on to learn why you may need to set the ethnicity for an onward referral:
APPLIES to: Refer Patient On feature
When a new referral is created via Refer Patient On, the Patient Tab / Ethnicity:
Ethnicity will need to be set if the original referral did not have the field saved with a response before creating the onward referral.
Check if this scenario applies by following the example below:
For each referral pair, there are only two relevant dates:
- When the referral was referred on. It is now it's own separate referral.
- When the Ethnicity was updated on the original referral.
So in this example Referral ID XXXX referred on to another scheme in your organisation: Referral ID YYYY
The new Referral ID: YYYY was created on 21.06.2022 but the ethnicity on the original referral (Referral ID XXXX) was only updated after that on 23-06-2022.
We hope this clarifies when the Ethnicity field must be set or updated for an Onward Referral ID.
