Address Book

 

Overview

Select File > Address Book.

The Address Book contains the names, phone numbers and address information for specialists, service providers and other people with whom you need to communicate. The data in the Address Book is used in the Letter Writer and when creating Pathology, Imaging and Cytology Investigation Requests.

It is common practice to keep the names of other General Practitioners, Physiotherapists and anyone else to whom you may need to write a clinical letter, in the Address Book.

Address Book names are listed alphabetically by surname or organisation name. You can also filter the list of names by surname or category;
